Today is a holiday in Japan.
It’s 「成人の日」(“Coming of Age Day” or “Adults Day”).
In Japan, twenty years old is the legal age of adulthood.
The drinking and voting age is 20 in Japan.
On the second Monday of January (today), twenty-year-olds in Japan dress in kimono and attend a special ceremony.
My oldest daughter will do it next year!
I can’t believe how fast they grow up!
Anyway, every winter in Tokyo it usually snows once or twice.
It’s snowing today!
The weather had been so nice everyday recently and then, on the day that so many people dressed up for a special day, the weather went downhill.
I feel sorry for them!
I hope the weather is nice on this day next year and the following two years … for my daughters’ ceremonies!
