Tokyo, Japan

Coming of Age Day is a Japanese celebration and holiday held annually on the second Monday of January. This year the festival takes place on the 11th of January, 2010. It is held in order to congratulate and encourage all those who have reached the age of majority (20 years old - the age considered as the beginning of adulthood). It is the minimum legal age for voting, drinking, and smoking in Japan as well. The most famous celebration is held in Tokyo.

The official ceremony is held in the morning at local city offices. During Coming of Age Day you can see a lot of young people in the streets all over the city. The girls are usually dressed in their traditional clothing, a Kimono, and guys generally in suits. After the ceremony, the young adults often gather in groups and go out to the clubs and parties.
