All Grown Up: Women Celebrate Coming-of-Age Day (Japan in Photos)

Women clad in colorful kimonos smile as they stroll through Toshimaen Amusement Park in Tokyo after attending a ceremony at the facility for Coming-of-Age Day on January 8, 2018. The holiday, held the second Monday of January, celebrates people who during the previous year turned 20 years old, the age of adulthood in Japan. The nation’s 1.23 million newly minted adults, those born in 1997, account for 0.97% of the overall population. (© Taga Morio/Jiji Press Photo)
