Kimonos on Monday – the “48 Family” Photos: I am so happy that it is Monday (12:01 GMT), so I can finally share these photos from “Coming of Age Day” 2015. This first photo is a large image that is perfect for PC wallpaper. I am using it as my wallpaper right now. It makes me happy just looking at it. It makes me feel good every time I boot the computer!
Several members of the AKB, NMB, SKE, and HKT 48 groups attended “Coming of Age Day” ceremonies held at the Kanda Myojin shrine in Tokyo.
The young women dressed in furisode, were blessed by a Shinto priest and drank holy sake as part of the ceremony.
Perhaps there were fewer “big name” participants from the AKB48 family turning 20 this year, but my oshimen — Iwasa Misaki was one of them. Best wishes to you Wasamin!

So much cuteness AND traditional beauty!!!
… each one more lovely than the next!
The news reported that there were sub-freeing temperatures that day. The girls — I mean — ladies (as they are considered adults now) were good sports about having the photos taken!
