“Coming of Age” is a crucial date in Japan. On the second Monday of January, the celebration helps congratulate young folks for the passage of time.
It’s a chance to encourage those who have reached or will reach the “age of maturity” (20 years old) between April 2 of the previous year and April 1 of the current year, and to help them realize that they have become adults.
As Japan celebrates the annual holiday, we hosted Erling Braut Haaland, the world’s most famous 20-year-old footballer on the stage to congratulate the day of marking the passage into adulthood.
Congratulating his peers in Japanese, the Norweigian forward shared his sentiments with the fans in Japan.
