The Seijinshiki (Coming of Age ceremony) has long history in Japan, and is considered an important event in the lives of young people. This will be the third annual International Seijinshiki held here in Auckland, since its inception in 2016. Each year we celebrate 'new adults' as they take the next step in their lives, and aim to hold a ceremony that blends traditional Japanese culture and values with a New Zealand twist. This time we are collaborating with the 2018 Japan Day festivities in Auckland, and hope to provide a unique and fun event for new adults and celebratants alike!
The event is organised mainly by students, and unfortunately we are short of funds, if you are curious about our event, please help us!!

quality is high.
● Would like to join the ceremony, wearing the dress since they already finished the Kimono
commemorative photos in Japan and the dress style is unique to NZ.
● Suggest that it would be better to set the different prices according to the ages.
● Suspect not all of Japanese would be interested in the ceremony.
● Are interested in Japanese culture, and are would like to participate in the ceremony.
● Consider that Coming of age ceremony is not important for them and would like to know
● Are willing to interact with people from Japan.
● Suggest that it would be good to make the party something like the ball. Say that nobody
would join the event if no alcohol provided, and $30 is too expensive. It is not necessary that
alcohol is provided for free, but the bar (anywhere offers alcohol) should necessarily be
