SEIJIN-shiki, US-Japan Friendship Coming of Age Celebration
January 19, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
“SEIJIN-shiki” is the Japanese coming-of-age celebration held annually in January. It is an opportunity for the community’s newly emerging young adults to be recognized.
The JIA Foundation is bringing this tradition to the USA. The ceremony and celebration are open to everyone in the community to attend.
If you are coming-of-age this year (born between January 1998 and March 2000) and are interested in Japanese culture, you are eligible to be a part of the celebration. Emceed by Ms. Lori Matsukawa, she will graciously welcome all guests into adulthood.
