  • みなさん、こんにちは、ちかです!

  • Hey guys! It's Chika.

  • Welcome to the Japanagos Channel!

  • Today is January 12th, 2015,

  • and I am at the Coming-of-Age ceremony in Shibuya.

  • 今日は、渋谷の成人式に来ています。

  • Coming of Age day or seijin no hi

  • is held every year on the second monday of January,

  • to celebrate "new adults".

  • Those who have turned 20,

  • or are turning 20 in the current school year

  • gather for seijin shiki, the Coming-of-Age ceremony.

  • It's like a graduation.

  • Graduating childhood and entering adulthood.

  • but more than anything,

  • it's like a modern-day kimono fashion show!

  • The girls, or women excuse me,

  • were absolutely gorgeous in their furisode kimonos.

  • Furisode are kimonos with long sleeves like this,

  • originally worn by unmarried women.

  • Nowadays there are no strict rules

  • so you can be older and or married

  • and still wear a furisode

  • but it's kind of a symbol of Seijin no hi

  • and a style often worn by younger women.

  • Back in the edo period (1600s to late 1800s)

  • we didn't have wedding rings to show marital status,

  • we had furisode.

  • We also had ohaguro,

  • dying your teeth black after marriage,

  • and hikimayu, shaving your eyebrows off after marriage,

  • Thank goodness

  • we don't have those traditions anymore.

  • Some girls get a brand new furisode for this event,

  • but some wear the furisode that their mothers wore

  • to their seijin shiki.

  • This is my mom's kimono.

  • Oh really?

  • It's so beautiful, even now.

  • Isn't it?

  • I love it.

  • Congratulations!

  • As for the guys,

  • most wear suits and ties,

  • but some take full advantage of this opportunity

  • to sport a hakama, a pants-style kimono.

  • Today's the only day I have a chance to wear it.

  • I wanted to wear it at least once in my lifetime.

  • So I thought today was the day.

  • You're looking good!

  • Thank you!

  • I personally think all guys should wear it!

  • I got a press pass

  • and got to sit in for the first half of the ceremony.

  • The ceremonies are organized by region or city,

  • and you go to the one of your hometown

  • or where you went to middle school.

  • since most kids commute outside of town for high school.

  • The orchestra up there is playing Let it Go, of course.

  • With speeches by the mayor,

  • members of the ward assembly,

  • a few representativenew adults"

  • It's just like a graduation ceremony

  • We're finally adults.

  • From today on,

  • we will take responsbility of our own actions,

  • and do what we can to contribute to society.

  • As we celebrate this day,

  • I would like to take the opportunity

  • to thank everyone that has been there for me.

  • Thank you very much.

  • So what does becoming an adult entail?

  • So being 20 here in Japan is a big deal

  • because now you're legal basically in every aspect.

  • You can drink, you can smoke,

  • you can vote,

  • whether you choose to do those things or not

  • is up to you, but you have that choice

  • now that you're an adult and you're legal,

  • and you're able to make your own decisions.

  • We need to get on top of things!

  • Be more responsible.

  • I can drink now!

  • Now that you're "adults," any resolutions?

  • to not change actually.

  • After the seijin shiki,

  • many of the new adults or shin seijin (新成人),

  • will have reunions with their old classmates,

  • go drinking with friends,

  • go drinking with their parents,

  • or go visit a nearby shrine or temple.

  • Alright guys, so there you have it!

  • That is what a Coming-of-Age ceremony is like in Japan

  • There are lots of ceremonies throughout the country.

  • So this is just one of them.

  • I never got to experience seijin shiki

  • or seijin no hi myself when I was 20 so

  • I kind of was able to relive the moment

  • through everyone here.

  • It was really great! I hope you guys enjoyed it!

  • and I will see you guys again soon!

  • What's the legal age in your country?

  • and do you have celebrations

  • and ceremonies like this?

  • Let me know in the comments!

  • See ya!
