One of Japanese traditions for children – Shichi-Go-San

Shichi-Go-San is one of traditional celebrations for children’s growth in Japan. In the celebration, children’s well-being is prayed.

By the way “Shichi-Go-San” means “7-5-3.” It’s a cerebration for 3 and 5 year-old boys, and 3 and 7 year-old girls.

On the day of the cerebration, children dress up kimono and go to a shrine with parents/family to have a ritual.
