Coming of Age Day 2024: In Japan, the second Monday of January is designated as Coming of Age Day, which falls on January 8 this year. One of the most eagerly anticipated Japanese rituals for everyone who turned 20 the year before is this one. It’s a family- and community-oriented coming-of-age celebration. The women dress in extremely costly formal kimonos known as “Furisode.” To help the youth transition into maturity, there are parties, prayers, and photo shoots. This festival fully honors the significant and joyous milestone of reaching adulthood, which grants you both obligations and some liberties.

Coming of Age Day History

Being an adult is a significant new chapter that should be celebrated. In Japan, Coming of Age Day festivities are held when a person turns 20. The custom of commemorating the Coming of Age, or “genpuku,” may have originated in the late Asuka period (538-710) yet the first known written account of ancient times dates only to 714 A.D. When it came to glamming up his passage into adulthood, the then-Crown Prince Obito went all out, donning new robes and a new hairstyle.

The celebration was granted formal recognition in 1948 and is now observed on January 15 of each year in Japan. The second Monday in January was adopted as the new date for Coming of Age Day in 2000. Before the year 710, there was no set age range for the ceremony’s eligibility; participants might be as young as 10 or as old as 25. In a ritual known as the “Cap Ceremony,” or “kanre’i,” male members of the court nobility marked their coming of age by being granted the privilege to don the adult cap, or “kammuri.”

The day is jam-packed because the kids’ local government has officially invited them to give a speech. Men dress in suits or, staying loyal to their heritage, in traditional hakama pants, while women play dress-up for hours, getting their ornate kimonos fitted and their hair styled. Giving away gifts, having parties, having motivational speeches, and posing for pictures complete out events.
