I am Ayumi from SAKURA HOSTEL ASAKUSA.
Last weekend, I went Sensoji Temple to pray for my son as the Shichi-Go-San's ceremony.
Shichi-Go-San literally means seven, five, and three.
This is a traditional Japanese event to celebrate the healthy growth of children.
This event is for five year-old boys and three and seven year-old girls.
Actualｌy my son is still 2 years and 9 month and boy.
But one of my niece got be 3 years old, so we joined with their ceremony.
It was a good opportunity to realize my son's growth.
Watching his appearance to walk wearing a kimono, makes me recall last? few years memory with him.
I felt very happy to celebrate Shichi-Go-San.blate together.
In general, Shichi-Go-San is held on November 15th.
Nowadays, some families celebrate Shichi-Go-San on weekend of the first half of November.
You will have chance to encounter Shichi-Go-San in Sensoji this weekend.
