Coming-of-Age Day

The second Monday of January is
a Japanese holiday / Coming-of-Age Day
which honors young people who have reached
the age of 20 as new members of adult society.

Last year, my daughter had reached the age of 20.
So I took commemorative pictures of her
dressed in furisode, which is a traditional formal kimono
for unmarried women at Japanese Garden in Tokyo



You can enjoy authentic tea-making procedure
at the venerable teahouse,

In autumnal garden

also Japanese Dishes at 槐樹 Enju.

  3. Thanks, MB & Anya
    I'm happy to hear such compliments.
    The kimono makes everyone graceful.
    Please Try it on!

    Usually, she wears jeans, boots and
    a down jacket to school, and she
    has a merry disposition.
