Day 8 [New Year’s Resolution]: Coming of Age Day in Japan
Today is a national holiday, which means no work!
There are a lot of national holidays in Japan where office workers and the like get a day off. Today is Coming of Age day, where those who turned 20 years old in the past year dress in kimonos or suits and go to their local city hall for a ceremony.
Then, because 20 is the legal age to drink in Japan, they go out and get bladdered with their friends.
I didn’t do much with my day off except write and go out with my friends. National holidays are for relaxing, after all. It’s back to the grind tomorrow, though.
Oyasumi for now.
