Shichi Go San: Keiki Kimono Dressing

Sunday, November 12, 2017 - 9:00am to 3:00pm
Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii

Shichi Go San, literally translated as “seven, five, three,” stems from the Meiji Era (1868-1912) when parents brought their kimono-clad children—girls, ages three and seven; and boys, age three and five—to Shintō shrines on November 15 and prayed for their children to have long and prosperous lives. Today, this coming-of-age custom has evolved to encompass all children regardless of their age.

Children can dress up in elegant kimono and zōri (sandals) and capture the day with a professional photograph at this traditional event.
