Seijin Shiki 2014

It was that time of year again where folks who have just become 20 hit the streets to celebrate - and they do so in traditional style wearing kimono or hakama - but then some prefer to do it Western style and wear a suit instead.

Folks who have just turned 20 are called Shinseijin and can legally do all the things that they had already been doing for the past few years.

As with previous years, we go to Shibuya to take a look at the festivities that went on - especially around Shibuya Koukaidou which was previously known as C.C Lemon Hall.
