成人の日の通し矢

Toshiya on Adult Day

The second Monday of January is “Adult Day”.

Since 20 years old is considered an adult in Japan now, we celebrate men and women who reach 20 years old.

Many women wear kimono and attend ceremonies.

“Toshiya” was held at Sanjusangendo at Kyoto on January 15th.

It is an event to compete in archery in hopes of growth of adults.

It was held wearing long sleeved Kimonos during the snowing this year.

A shooting gallery was placed in the precincts, people who concentrated on target 60 meters ahead and released arrows.

1月の第2月曜日は「成人の日」です。
日本では現在、20歳が成人とされているので
20歳を迎えた男女のお祝いをします。
女性は振袖を着て式典に出席する人が多いです。
1月15日に京都の三十三間堂で「通し矢」が行われました。
成人の成長を願って弓道で競い合うイベントです。
今年は雪が降る中、晴れ着姿で行われました。
境内に的場が設置され、
60メートル先の的を狙って集中し、
矢を放つ姿が見られました。
