The second Monday of January in Japan is the so-called “Coming of Age Day”. The holiday is celebrated by everyone who has turned 20 in the past year. Previously, after a coming-of-age ceremony, young Japanese were given the right to marry. Today, on this day, an official ceremony of congratulations is held by the heads of local administrations, and adults themselves visit churches during the day, and in the evening they go to bars, clubs and taverns.

On this day, Japanese women celebrating their majority wear a special kimono - furisode, a fur cape, a belt, traditional slippers, and carry a small handbag. The price of such an outfit is comparable to the cost of a car, which is why many people rent a kimono or inherit it.
