  • Hey guys!

  • Tomorrow is a national holiday in Japan, known as Seijin no Hi

  • Would probably be something like Coming of Age Day

  • Basically it's where all the 20 year olds in Japan

  • celebrate their coming of age, so becoming adults

  • Today I'm going to be attending a Seijin Shiki

  • or Coming of Age Ceremony

  • My friend Jei turned 20 recently, so he will be celebrating becoming an adult

  • and he was able to participate in a Seijin Shiki today

  • So I'm gonna take you guys along and document his experience

  • Everybody who is turning 20 between April 2nd 2015 and April 1st 2016

  • will attend a ceremony, either today or tomorrow

  • Most of them happen tomorrow on the actual holiday

  • But there are a few going on today

  • So when you turn 20 in Japan, you're officially an adult

  • You can drink, smoke, go to hostess clubs

  • What else can you do when you're 20...

  • You can vote! I think that's basically it

  • So lots of 20 year olds today will be celebrating

  • The girls wear very gorgeous kimonos

  • The guys either wear a suit or hakama

  • Traditional Seijin Shiki wear would be hakama

  • Most people would wear a suit these days

  • We'll see what the guys are gonna be wearing today

  • Let's go! I hope you guys enjoy this!

  • Abiko City - Coming of Age Ceremony

  • How did you get permission to join today?

  • It was a bit of a mission

  • My boss had to help me out

  • So she asked around to many different cities trying to get me permission

  • Because I'm a foreigner, it's not exactly the easiest to get in

  • Usually the foreigner is not 20 to start with

  • If she or he is 20, they've got to have a Japanese residency

  • Or on their passport saying they're a Japanese citizen

  • I'm on a working holiday visa so it's pretty tough for me

  • Are you excited?

  • I'm excited!

  • Abiko City, this building here, they've let me join

  • It'll start soon and I'm looking forward to it!

  • I've heard it's gonna be some speeches

  • The local Japanese think it's a little bit boring

  • But I'm looking forward to that anyways

  • Get to listen to some more difficult Japanese

  • Their hair looks really nice

  • Congratulations!

  • Thank you!

  • Are you excited?

  • I'm excited!

  • The ceremony will start any minute now

  • Yeah lots of people are here now!

  • Any plans for after the ceremony?

  • After the ceremony I'm gonna get WRECKED

  • So you're going drinking?

  • Sure am!

  • Until morning!

  • As I expected

  • Gonna pass out tonight

  • and the teachers were bowing to all the students

  • On a big screen they put up all the memories, photos, videos

  • of 1st grade, 2nd grade all the way through
