Halloween is right around the corner. And there's a new apartment building opening in Japan that's designed to look like a witch house. No, really.

Located in the city of Hamamatsu, the apartment complex is located in a regular residential area.

It was designed to create a fairy tale-type feeling for everyone in the neighborhood. Asahi News reports that finishing touches are being put on the complex before residents are slated to move in during the new year.

While Halloween has become increasingly popular in the past decade, trick-or-treating still really isn't done—or really done right, for that matter. Where it is done, the practice can feel a bit too organized, and you generally don't see kids and parents roaming the streets looking for candy.

But if the country is going to start trick-or-treating correctly (make it happen, Japan!), this year-round Halloween apartment complex is the perfect place to start.
