Shichi-Go-San literally means "7-5-3" and is an anual event in Japan which parents celebrate their childrens' growth when they are 3, 5 and 7 years old. (3 and 7 for girls and 5 for boys.) And these photos are from my Shichi-Go-San when I was turning 7 taken with my brothers and mum. I really loved my kimono my grandmother had made for me, I still have it somewhere in my parents house. If I ever will have a daughter I want her to wear it for her Shichi-Go-San :)
November 15th is the original date for this festivity, but most people do it on the closest weekends to this day. So if you are in Japan this weekend there is a good chance you might see cute little children dressed up in their kimonos going to the shrines with their parents!
