Japanese women dressed in kimono, who will reach the age of 20 this year, pose in front of the Cinderella Castle after attending a coming-of-age ceremony at Tokyo Disneyland.The second Monday of January is a national holiday called Coming-of-Age Day in Japan.
Many women celebrate this day by wearing furisode kimono (a style of kimono with long sleeves that drape down).Since most are unable to put on a kimono by themselves due to the intricacies involved in putting one on, many choose to visit a beauty salon to dress and to set their hair. A full set of formal clothing is expensive, so it is usually either borrowed from a relative or rented rather than being bought especially for the occasion. After the ceremony, the young adults often celebrate in groups by going to parties or going out drinking.
