A Coming-of-Age Day 2013

Today is "Seijin-Shiki" throughout Japan,as you know.
This is the scene of the ceremony (feast) of coming-of age celebration.
These new adults are opening sake barrels by breaking lids with wooden hammers.
This is called "Kagami-nuki".
In this year,1,220,000 people became new adults in Japan.
I wish you all happiness!
