This year was Hikaru's very first Halloween to go trick-or-treating at his preschool. Hikaru is the brown "monkey" with the big yellow ears and long tail. Yes, we just sewed some ears on his jacket hood.
They went door-to-door and collected a bag full of goodies. His classmates were Mini Mouse and Snow White.
In the photo above, Hikaru checks out his bag and shows a box of juice.
Fellow classmates are Mickey Mouse, two Darth Vaders, a Banana, and Tinker Bell.
In the photo below, Hikaru is being carried by Totoro, the teacher.
This is the classic "monkey stance" well-known in the martial arts world. Hikaru took off his shoes because this is the gym where they also practice kendo.
Below are Hikaru's teachers -- Lady Bug, Totoro, Pirate, Cat in the Hat, Mermaid, Japanese Performer, Hula Dancer, and Doraemon. What a cast of characters! Isn't school a fun place?
