On August 18, the Obake (ghost) Night Museum was held at the Okinawa Zoo & Museum. Eight ghosts, which were selected from about 1,000 evil spirit characters created for the museum by children, appeared in the haunted house set up in the museum. Many children and their parents cautiously walked into the “haunted house.” Some children screamed and grabbed their parents.

Children and their parents who are invited to the party held by a ghost Candy Grandpa, and deliver candy gifts to him.

Ten-year-old Rusei Maeda and his five-year-old sister Miki took part in the event with their parents. They said that the ghosts popped-out from the walls and that it was really scary.

The event is held every Saturday and Sunday from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., until September 1.
