20 yaşını doldurmuş gençlerin "yetişkinliğe" adım attığı kabul edilen Japonya'da bu özel yaşı kutlamak için törenler düzenleniyor.

Gençlerin geleneksel kıyafetlerini giyerek katıldığı törenler renkli görüntülere sahne oluyor.

 

Flower power: The girls look gorgeous in their painstakingly made pink, orange and blue ensembles

 

Flurry of activity: The young ladies wrap their kimonos round them and tread carefully, embroidered bags jostling with leather handbags on their arms

 

Moving through the seasons: The 20-year-olds process through the snow at Disneyland Tokyo as they attend the formal Coming of Age ceremony

 

Reflective moment: The rain and snow could not put a dampener on the high spirits of these young people

 

Blossoming Blossoming into adulthood: The girls laugh, chatter and text excitedly as they celebrate turning 20 at the colourful eventinto adulthood: The girls laugh, chatter and text excitedly, while dressed in beautiful, colourful kimonos

 

Picture perfect: The young women trudge through heavy snow in traditional costume - but their smiles stay in place

 

Not your average commuters: The girls look unselfconscious as they travel home on typical modes of transport after the celebration, attended by 1,200 young people

 

Blend is beautiful: A young woman in a rainbow-bright outfit stands talking on her phone in front of a line of vending machines - a symbol of Japan today

 

Red letter day: This girl goes for a different look with a scarlet parasol, defying the trend for delicate white umbrellas

 

Perfect poise: A soft and wistful look is more tradition for the day, honoured by Japanese people across the country

 

Handbags and gladrags: Others celebrated their special day at Toshimaen Amusement Park in Tokyo

 

Our turn now: The ancient event used to differ for boys and girls and take place when they were younger but it has existed in its present form since the 1940s
