Coming of Age Day is a Japanese holiday to congratulate people who became 20 years old. 20 years old is the age of majority in Japan. Many women wear kimono to celebrate this day. If you see them in town, you say “Omedeto!!” (congratulation).

5-10 cm of new snow is forecast tonight. I really hope it will.
