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. As before, drinking and smoking are allowed at age 20, and the right to vote and to obtain a driver's license for passenger vehicles begins at age 18 (16 for motorcycles). The prospects for long-term care for growing ageing populations are daunting, but this does not mean that efforts on future planning are pointless. For example, adult status becomes effective on the 18th birthday, with some exceptions; both men and women can marry and are released from parental authority. Her current projects include 'Japan's voluntary time-banking schemes in elderly care' and 'Community programmes for frail older people in Britain', both investigating implications for common 'Big Society' agendas in the two countries.

Accordingly, institutional expansion was limited and stigmatised, while legal, customary and moral obligations and social pressures surrounding family care for older people remained strong.For women, as for men, the ceremony revolved around the presentation of adult clothing; however, women were presented with a pleated skirt, not a court cap. The earliest official record of genpuku in Japan dates back to the Nara period (710–794 AD), and the ceremony itself is based on an earlier Chinese custom in the Tang dynasty. It confirms the importance of limited resources and the familiar question - 'who is entitled to what?

The Ceremony is also a good opportunity for the beauty industry, which dresses, makes up, and hairdos for the attendees. Specific ceremonial formats are built around specific constructions of class, rank, and time period.From the data of 13 longitudinal cohort studies on aging conducted in Japan with a total of 13,441 older subjects, this study analyzed the changes in six indices that are related to health and functioning of the older people; height, weight, body mass index, walking speed, grip strength, and instrumental activity of daily living, between 2007 (±2 years) and 2017 (±2 years). However, because kimonos are so expensive that many end up renting them or using those handed down from their mothers. This ceremony marked the transition from child to adult status and the assumption of adult responsibilities.
