Japan To Lower Age Of Adulthood from 20 To 18

The Japanese government on Tuesday approved a bill to lower the adulthood age from 20 to 18, a move that would enable 18- and 19-year-olds to sign contracts and get married without the consent of their parents.

The planned amendment, which the government aims to bring into force in April 2022, would change the definition of an adult under the Civil Code for the first time since it was enacted in the late 19th century, affecting wide areas including the acquisition of licenses.

But people aged 19 or below will remain prohibited from drinking, smoking and gambling.

Currently, people under 20 in Japan can only get married with parental consent, from the age of 18 in the case of men and 16 for women. The revision would lift the legal age of marriage for women to 18 so that both men and women aged 18 and older can get married without parental consent. The government will aim to revise the juvenile law once it receives the council's report.

Asian people always want to be different . Is 18 years not suppose to be adult age again, which one is 20 years?

Faith I think different countries have their own policies. What applies in Nigeria isnt what is applied abroad. Though, Asian Countries tend to stay away from western doctrines or policies
