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!
