JIA Foundation will host the 4th annual SEIJIN-shiki USA on Sunday, January 15, 2023. The ceremony is held in English and welcomes any US resident whose birthday falls between January 2001 and March 2003, regardless of nationality. 

SEIJIN-shiki, the Japanese coming of age celebration, is held every January across Japan. It is an opportunity for the community’s newly emerging young adults, new SEIJIN, to be recognized and welcomed into society. JIA Foundation has brought the tradition to the USA. Our SEIJIN-shiki is an opportunity to share and experience Japanese culture, and to build friendships amongst the “Class of SEIJIN 2023.”

 This event is co-hosted by JIA Foundation and the Consulate-General of Japan in Seattle.

JIA Foundation


The JIA Foundation is the organizer of SEIJIN-shiki USA, and was founded in 2014 to meet the needs of the current wave of Japanese immigrants and expats who benefit greatly from Japanese language specific services. “JIA” is an acronym which stands for Japanese in America. We define “JIA” as those of any race and nationality who speak Japanese and appreciate Japanese culture and values.
