Coming of Age Day

The Coming of Age, or Seijin no Hi (成人の日), is held the second Monday of January. On this day young adults who became 20 years old are congratulated for reaching adulthood. These young adults wear furisode, a type of kimono with long sleeves, and attend a ceremony called Coming of Age Ceremony, or Seijin-shiki (成人式). This kind of ceremony is held at schools, different offices, and also with family and friends.
