AKB48 members on Coming of Age Day 2012

The start of something great! This is a file photo of the AKB48 members on “Coming of Age Day ” 2012.

WOO HOO!!! What a great time of year!!!

I am gearing up for Japan’s national holiday “Coming of Age Day”, which will be on Monday January 12!  “Coming of Age Day” (成人の日, Seijin no Hi ) is a Japanese holiday held annually on the second Monday of January. Ceremonies are held in order to congratulate and encourage all those who have reached the “age of majority” (20 years old (二十歳, hatachi )) over the past year, and to help them realize that they have become adults.  In Japan, when a person turns twenty years old, they are considered to have “turned into a person” and therefore are expected to act like an adult. Activities that were previously forbidden to “kids” such as drinking and smoking, become permissible after the Coming-of-age Day. So, with age comes responsibility.  (To American college students: Look up from your cell phone and take notes on this!!!)

I’m just a fanboy — so what do I know … for a better and fuller story. I encourage you to research websites for events and ceremonies.  Here is an example:

Oh, you may enjoy some video:

Back to being a FANBOY:  The day will be even more eventful for me because several members of AKB, SKE, NMB, etc48, will be turning “the big two-oh” this year. I will be exploring websites searching for the lovely kimonos that will be worn that day.

Also, many more members will no longer be considered kids, Otaku can now ogle certain AKB members with impunity! Before the 12th, you would have to be some type of PERVERT to look at Anna Iriyama … but after the 12thWoo Hoo!

SKE Seira, Madoka, Mikiti, Ogichan, Aya, Koami, Hioki in 2013!

Last year’s “Coming of Age” in the 48 family!!!

I’m looking forward to more kimonos!  It may take me a few days or even weeks to find all the photos I want to share. Also, if you find some good ones, email them to me at DennySinnoh@gmail.com    Comments and corrections are also requested!

Until Monday, you would have to be some type of PERVERT to be looking at Anna!

Just one “Kimonos on Monday” post will probably not be enough! I am hoping to collect a lot more images to share over the next couple of months!
