Shichi-Go San ceremony, Japan

Today according to Australian Eastern Standard Time when this item was posted
Shich-Go san literally means 'seven-five-three'; the ceremony is performed in families who have daughters of seven, sons of five, and sons and daughters of three years of age. The children are taken to shrines to drive out evil spirits and receive the blessings of the deities. It’s one of the few occasions these days on which Japanese women wear the kimono.
