Happy New Year to you and to all of Japan’s “new adults”! The second Monday in January is “Seijin no Hi (#成人の日),” a Japanese national holiday, which celebrates young women and men who, at 20 years old, have officially become adults. Cities throughout Japan will host parties at various venues, where mayors will give speeches imparting well wishes and encouragement to the young adults. Women will dress in furisode kimonos and men in hakamas. This picture is from a 2020 ceremony. (@鴨川シーワールド).
