Ghost Bus Hawaii is Open for the Holidays in Waikiki

The Ghost Bus was brought from Japan to Hawaii by JTB Hawaii as a new year-round attraction.

After a sold-out Halloween week, the Ghost Bus from Japan is still here to make your holidays merry and scary!

JTB Hawaii wanted to do something exciting and positive for the local community as we have all faced difficulties and challenges due to the COVID pandemic.”

— Hiroyuki Kitagawa, President & CEO, JTB Hawaii, Inc.

HONOLULU, HAWAII, U.S., November 19, 2021 / — JTB Hawaii launched Ghost Bus Hawaii in Waikiki during a sold-out Halloween week, and is very excited to announce a continued schedule through 2022 – why save all the scary-fun just for Halloween, right? Since 1964, JTB Hawaii has been an active member of the Hawaii community facilitating travel and cultural experiences to and from Japan. And now, they have introduced a facet of Japanese pop culture called “Obake Yashiki” (Japanese Haunted House) to the United States starting right here in Hawaii.

“JTB Hawaii wanted to do something exciting and positive for the local community as we have all faced difficulties and challenges due to the COVID pandemic,” said Hiroyuki Kitagawa, President & CEO of JTB Hawaii, Inc. “We would like to thank everyone for the successful debut of Ghost Bus Hawaii and look forward to making it a year-round activity for locals and visitors."

Although it may seem a little strange to have a haunted house outside of Halloween or an amusement park, they are popular attractions year-round In Japan. The Ghost Bus Hawaii Production Committee hopes this will catch on in Hawaii, bringing thrills and chills to those who dare to enter the Ghost Bus through the holidays and into 2022!

Added Kitagawa, “Ghost Bus tickets make great holiday gifts for friends and family, and is a fun bonding activity. The bus can also be driven to locations island-wide for private parties and corporate events."

The Ghost Bus Hawaii Production Committee is inviting local Covid-19 hospital teams and first responders to experience the Ghost Bus during the Black Friday weekend, November 26 & 27, to thank them for their hard work and the many sacrifices they made throughout the pandemic. Invitations have been sent directly to the hospitals and organizations.

Created with the assistance of Japanese horror master Michaelty Yamaguchi, Ghost Bus Hawaii is a very unique “haunted house” built inside a stationary, dark, horrifying bus. The Ghost Bus doesn’t actually drive anywhere, but utilizes audio-visual sensory effects and incorporates live actors to transport passengers to a scary dimension, and provides the unique Japanese horror experience that has taken the world by storm. These experiences were once only available in Japan, but now can be experienced in Hawaii. Once inside the bus, there is nowhere to escape. Are you brave enough to experience this? Come aboard if you dare…
