Event Details

Shichi Go San, literally translates to “seven, five, three,” and stems from the Meiji Era (1868-1912) when parents 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 in Japan, this coming-of-age custom is celebrated on November 15.

At the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii’s annual event, children are dressed in elegant kimono and zori (sandals), a professional photographer captures the day, and they receive a Shinto blessing.
