THIS EVENT IS IN THE PAST!
Shichi-Go-San (Kimono Event)
Shichi-Go-San (Seven-Five-Three) is observed on November 15 in Japan. It is the day when girls who are three and seven years old and boys who are three and five are dressed in their finest clothes and taken by their parents to the nearby shrines to pray for their healthy growth and good health.
At the Japanese Friendship Garden, we will be celebrating Shichi-go-san by dressing up your three and seven year-old girls and five year-old boys in traditional kimonos and photographing them in our beautiful Garden.
The cost includes kimono and accessory rental, dressing, photography and CD of photographs. Girls and boys will be dressed by Mrs. Michiko Delaney, president of San Diego Biso-Kai.
