There is close relationship between Kimono and Coming of Age Day in Japan.
Coming of Age Day is a Japanese holiday held annually on the second Monday of January, and it is held to congratulate and encourage all those who have reached the age of majority (20 years old ).Many women celebrate this day by wearing Furisode kimono (distinguishable by its long sleeves, which average between 39 and 42 inches in length). 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.
After the ceremony, the young adults often celebrate in groups by going to parties or going out drinking.
