HEP FIVE is a landmark shopping centre in Umeda, Osaka. The site is set to celebrate Halloween for the entire month of October with their event Shijou Saikyo no HEP FIVE HALLOWEEN (“HEP FIVE’s Scariest Halloween”).
The event is set on promoting next generation fashion and culture from Umeda which is being done in collaboration with students from Kansai as an academia-industry project.
Nakanishi Horror Sweets
The Halloween themed event will see the shopping centre’s Ferris wheel take on a horror theme and be renamed Kaidansha (“Ghost Story Ferris Wheel”). This is being made in collaboration with Osaka Electro-Communication University.
You can also get your Halloween makeup done for you by the students of Osaka Beauty Art College and receive original HEP FIVE Halloween candy made by Nakanishi Horror Sweets Workshop. There plenty of other spooky content to enjoy too.
Horror Ferris Wheel
Prepare to enter a horror filled story that will take you to a place you cannot escape up 106m high. Students in the Digital Games Department and Games & Media Department of Osaka Electro-Communication University have devised two stories for this Ferris wheel attraction: Hitori Bocchi (“All Alone”) and Norowareta Kannazuki (“Cursed October”). The inside and outside of the Ferris wheel will be decorated and take on horror themes for each story. Rumi Hiiragi, who voiced protagonist Chihiro in the Studio Ghibli film Spirited Away, will lend her voice to this story with an audio performance. You can also watch a spin-off video of the story by locating and scanning the QR code hidden somewhere in the carriages.
Horror Sweets Presents
If you spend over ¥1,000 and present your receipt, you can get your hands on some creepy-cute and Instagram-worthy original horror sweets made in collaboration with Nakanishi Horror Sweets Workshop.
Halloween Makeup Service
Want your Halloween makeup done for you? The students of Osaka Beauty Art College will be giving free service so those who want it. They’ll paint blood on your face, stick fake scars on you and more.
Experience the scares of HEP FIVE this Halloween.
