We lived in Yokohama before, but are not doing resident registration by moving now. Can you participate in coming-of-age ceremony of Yokohama-shi? (in the case of domestic residence)
[in principle] We cannot do it. We make resident registration in Yokohama-shi and become a target. [reason] The number of the new adults of Yokohama-shi surpasses 36,000 people. In addition, we decide to hold the ceremony as preventive measures against infection four times in 2 venues this year. Because we receive instruction to hold coming-of-age ceremony safely from capacity and the district police station of Yokohama Arena and Pacifico-yokohama north and fire department, what we accept toward other than the new adult who is resident in Yokohama-shi is in a situation that it is difficult at all. [exception measures] "Person who was transferred from Yokohama-shi to after twelfth grader" (domestic resident) On the day there is space in venue after new adult having admission ticket entered and can enter when the person has you show all the next. Come to "ticket reissue window" installed in each venue directly. Take confirmation documents by all means. When you do not have, we cannot enter.

When we live in administrative section boundary and go to elementary and junior high school of Yokohama City Univ. unlike township, is change of time possible?
Though we went to elementary and junior high school out of the township separately from intention of the person, you must participate at venue and ceremony time assigned for each township on the day of the coming-of-age ceremony and you cannot participate with school mate at the time and have a lot voice that I am sorry. Such a case did not accept concerning venue capacity so far, but as a result of venue having a lot the inquiry mentioned above this year as it was in 2 venues, and the ceremony number of times increased, and having considered again in the secretariat, new adult who went to elementary and junior high school of Yokohama City Univ. which was different from township separately from intention of the person as exception measures decided to enable change in venue and participation time.
