Seijin-no-hi or Adults Day is a Japanese public holiday held on the second Monday of January. When young people reach the age of twenty they officially become adults in Japan. This gives them the legal ability to drink, vote and smoke. Coming of Age Day is celebrated across Japan each January though some spots are more festive than others, such as this event that took place at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine in Kamakura. Girls usually wear kimono, while boys usually wear a regular suit and tie though some wear traditional Japanese mens kimono. The ceremony seisin shiki takes place at the local city office before moving onto the shinto shrine. The day starts early for these new adults, especially girls who have to spend hours doing their makeup and hair and the long period of time it takes to put on a kimono.
