Box Office Policy

Momotaro Live Foley Performance with Goro Koyama + Spooky Animated Short Films
Three performances: 12:30 AM, 1:30 PM & 2:30 PM
Please pre-select your performance time with your ticket purchase. 

Squeaky doors, howling wind and ghosts, the crackle and boom of a thunderstorm, and monsters chomping! What would scary films be without their creepy sound effects? Foley is the art of making sound effects for movies. Enjoy a live sound effects performance by Goro Koyama, internationally recognized foley artist for movies such as Blade Runner 2049 (2017) and Vikings (TV Series) as you enjoy spooky films in our theater. Then learn how to make your own scary sounds!

 

Momotaro Japanese Haunted House (Obake no Yashiki)

Children enter a classic Japanese Haunted House to discover some of Japan’s most famous ghosts and goblins — a ghost (yurei) in the graveyard, the long neck woman (rokurokubi) and a one-eyed boy (hitotsume kozo) who scares children by making his enormous eye glow and sticking out his long tongue!

 

Momotaro Festival Games

Enjoy fun Japanese festival games at yatai vendor booths such as wanage (ring toss) superball scooping, shateki (rubber band flinging) and senbonbiki (pull a string to get a mystery prize) and win prizes!

 

Momotaro 100 Scary Stories

Join a storyteller in the Kaidan Hyaku-Monogatari (“100 Ghost Stories”) tradition. As each tale is told, candles are extinguished one by one to create an eerie atmosphere where an obake might just appear.

 

Momotaro 3D Trick Art

Create the ultimate selfie with our Halloween-themed 3D Trick Art photobooth! A popular phenomenon in Japan, trick art is large-scale works of art that seemingly add a third dimension, which the audience can enter and interact with.

 

Momotaro Candy Sculptures

Candy 5, a trained amezaiku artist, will entertain and mesmerize audiences by creating amazing ghost and goblin shaped candy for children! Amezaiku is a traditional Japanese candy craft in which an artist shapes multi-colored taffy into incredible edible sculptures.
