Yamanote Loop Line Halloween Massacre

October 30, 2007

OK, it wasn’t a massacre in that no one died. But lots of people apparently acted like douchebags. Really, this is the kind of thing that makes people hate Americans and having foreigners in their country in general. Reports put it at

about 200 to 250 foreigners, most of them Caucasian. There was also a number of Japanese participants, most of them Japanese women. After getting on the train, the party-goers became drunk and loud, shouting in English and becoming aggressive towards a few Japanese. At some point, an idiot removed or disabled the lighting in the train car, forcing the train to make an emergency stop at Shinagawa station, where police forced everyone out of the train and tried to see what had gone wrong with the lights. It is unclear whether this put an end to the party, or if it continued afterwards.

Nothing ruins fun like retard shenanigans. Hit the jump for a hilarious letter which “details” the happenings of the night.

2007 Yamanote Loop Line Halloween Party

October 25, 2007

Yamanote Loop Line Halloween Party

It is official and here are the details for this years party on the Loop Line:

The 2007 event is scheduled for Saturday, October 27, 2007. Festival-goers board the JR Yamanote Line at JR Shinjuku station, platform 13 (Yamanote bound for Ikebukuro). Japanese citizens as well as foreigners meet where car 10 stops, in front of the escalator from South exit. Everyone boards the 21:08 northbound train and loops around clockwise. Frequently everyone brings their own alcoholic beverages.

Another interesting item of note is the can the dude is holding, a drink called Chūhai (チューハイ or 酎ハイ), which I will elaborate on more. In the meantime, get your costume together and get ready for some ugly foreigners to be cramped into one train while drunk. Sounds like fun.

“Trick or Treat.”
