Evidence suggests Halloween's roots are linked to Celtic festivals, Roman feasts and Catholicism. But, no one is too certain. One thing we do know is that Halloween is a great excuse for a party.
This weekend Ezo Pub (Hilton) will host a Halloween party this Sunday night. There will be a free shuttle bus departing from the Hirafu Welcome Centre at 5:40 pm. Last bus back to Hirafu will be leaving Hilton Niseko at 11:15pm, via Sanso.
Ezo is offering all-you-can-drink (two hours) for ￥2,500 along with free karaoke and a live DJ.
For those who want to stay the night, there is a special room-rate for Ezo guests: Twin room ￥8000 or Twin room with 2 x Hilton Buffet Breakfast ￥12,000.
Of course you are encouraged to dress up in costume and there are prizes for those who do.
Call Hilton Niseko Village on 0136-44-1111 for more information.
