Gifts of Growth for Coming of Age Day

In the land of the rising sun, the transition from adolescence to adulthood is a momentous occasion celebrated with great fervor and tradition on Coming of Age Day, observed every year on January 8th. This Japanese holiday, known as "Seijin no Hi," is a time when those who have reached the age of maturity are congratulated on their new responsibilities and encouraged to embrace the challenges of adulthood. The day is filled with traditional ceremonies and vibrant after-parties full of joy and excitement. To make this celebration even more special, we have a list of thoughtful gifts available on MyUS Shopping that perfectly embody the spirit of Coming of Age Day.

Seijin Shiki Kimono

This kimono comes in a variety of colors and patterns, each symbolizing different aspects of Japanese culture. A high-quality kimono not only pays homage to tradition but also serves as a beautiful and lasting keepsake for the new adult.

Customer Review: I like the fabric and design. Easier to care for than silk. Sewing is good. Not long enough. – Virginia Lowe
