היפנים מחזיקים בשיא אריכות הימים

יסוטרו קואידו מיפן שהוכתר על ידי ספר השיאים גבר הקשיש בעולם הלך לעולמו בגיל 112. הוא תפקד כעצמאי, ואפילו קרא עיתון ללא משקפיים. מהו היה סוד אריכות החיים שלו? לא להגזים בשום דבר.

בשיבה טובה הלך לעולמו הגבר הקשיש בעולם: היפני יסוטרו קואידו מת בגיל 112. הוא חי כעצמאי רוב ימיו, ואף קרא עיתון בלי להסתייע במשקפיים.

(Coming of Age Day -Seijin no Hi (成人の日

The Coming of Age festival is celebrated on the second Monday in January. Until 1999, it used to be celebrated on 15 January

The day honors young Japanese who will reach the age of 20 at any point during the year. Twenty is the age of majority in Japan, and people who have reached this age gain the right to vote in elections as well as to drink

Coming of Age Day

Coming of age ceremonies have been celebrated in Japan since at least 714 AD, when a young prince donned new robes and a hairstyle to mark his passage into adulthood

Local governments usually have a ceremony known as a seijin shiki (adult ceremony) to honor the "new adults". The ceremony is held in the morning and all of the young people who live in the area are invited to attend as well as after-parties amongst family and friends. Government officials give speeches, and small gifts are handed out to the new adults

Many women celebrate this day by wearing furisode, a style of kimono with long sleeves that hang down, and zōri sandals. Since most are unable to put on a kimono by themselves due to the intricacies involved, many choose to visit a beauty salon to dress and to set their hair. A full set of formal clothing is expensive, so it is usually either borrowed from a relative or rented rather than bought especially for the occasion. Men sometimes also wear traditional dress (e.g. dark kimono with hakama), but nowadays many men wear formal Western clothes such as a suit and tie more often than the traditional hakama.[4] After the ceremony, the young adults often celebrate in groups by going to parties or going out drinking

Coming of Age day remains a popular holiday, but Japan's reduction in population growth in recent years means that fewer people are turning 20 – only 1.24 million in 2013 compared to almost double that at the start of the 1970's
