There are many special days in Japan. There are about 20 public holidays, for example, Green day culture day, Marrinday and so on. Coming-of- age Day is one of the most important. Do you know this days? Let me introduce it to you.
On the day is a ceremony for 20-year olds. They are conscious as adult and they celebrate the start of a new chapter in life. They are called “new adults”. I think, new adults should a thankful to their parents or grandparents because they were brought up to them.
Coming-of-age Day, women put on a kimono. In Japanese they are called Furisode. They are very gorgeous dresses. Men put on Hakama. This looks like a Samurai style. However recently, they often ware suits so Hakama is not so common. Coming-of-age-day is once in a life time so new adults are looking forward to the day.
A general ceremony is held a their local a big hall and a mayor delivers a speech congratulating everyone. In chiba, new adults take part in the ceremony in Disney land. Mickey and Minny cereblates to them. How I envy them! I wanted to go there. My ceremony was held in my high school’s?church and hold worship there.
