Coming of Age Day

Coming of Age Day Meiji Shrine

Yesterday was the coming of age day here in Japan, which celebrates young people reaching adulthood/the day of majority -20 years old. I visited the beautiful Meiji Shrine to catch a glimpse of the stunning traditional kimonos and ornate obi belts.
