Shichi Go San: Keiki Kimono Dressing

Saturday, November 16, 2019 - 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, on November 15 brought their kimono-clad children- girls, ages three and seven, and boys, ages three and five- to Shinto shrines 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 colorful kimono and zori (sandals) and capture the day with a professional photograph at this traditional Japanese event.
