Photographer's Note

Girls with Furisode on "Seijin no hi" (Coming-of-age Day), the second Monday of January in Japan. People celebrate this day to welcome the young women and men, who have turned the age of 20 during the year, as new members of society!
Furisode, the most gorgeous Kimono named after its long swinging sleeves, is the most formal Kimono for unmarried women.
I asked, and took this picture to them met on the street, saying that "May I take your picture? Please!".
