Coming-of Age Day is celebrated on the second Monday of January and today is the day. This day is dedicated to the nation's young people who have reached the age of twenty.  They are now new members of adult society! Local governments hold Coming-of Age ceremonies to which young people are invited. Many young women attend the ceremonies in  beautiful long-sleeved kimonos.

Coming-of-Age Day

 I have a daughter who just turned twenty. She went to a beauty salon to do her hair, makeup and dressing. Since many girls go to beauty salons, some girls have to go there at four o'clock in the morning! My daughter met elementary school classmates at the ceremony  whom she has not seen since the graduation and had a great day.

A big thank you Haruko for guiding us around Tokyo and personalising the tour to areas we wanted to see. Also your help with negotiating subway and rail which subsequently enabled us to give it a go ourselves. Overall a wonderful experience.

My family and I met Haruko for a morning at Meiji Shrine followed by a nice Tonkatsu lunch. We were impressed by not only her knowledge but also that she talked to each of us (ages ranged from 11 - 79). Would definitely recommend her!

“ Wonderful Tsukiji Market Tour! ”

We did a Tsukiji Market Tour with Haruko and she is an excellent tour guide. We learned so much from her about the market and she was patient with our kids (7 and 4 years old). I think the market would have been a stressful place for our family to navigate alone, but with Haruko we were able to truly enjoy ourselves. I highly recommend booking a tour with Haruko!

We thoughly enjoyed our two days with Haruko. We experienced a plane delay and she accommodated our changed schedules and a rain storm, shared her insights and love of the city, and was both warm and professional. Highlights were the museums and gardens, the markets and a visit to a kimono shop! We plan to meet again on our next trip.

Haruko is very fun loving. She is very flexible. Change as we go. I had one must to do list that is Tsukiji market and she did her best to show me around. This is the start of the busy season, there is too many people to really stop and tell stories. I wanted also to see the old and the new in tokyo and she just keep going. Every question ask, she tries to help me understand why.
