SHICHI-GO-SAN (7-5-3) SERVICE
Zenshuji Temple’s celebration for children’s Shichi-Go-San (7-5-3 years old) will
be held on Sunday, November 17th at 11:00 am AND 2 pm. You can pick either time
Usually girls of 7 years, boys of 5 years and boys and girls of 3 years old go to
the local shrine to express gratitude to the Gods for their growth and continued
blessings. The children dress in colorful traditional kimono as they enter the shrine.
If Western attire is worn, the children dress up in party dresses and suits. The
children are given candy called “chitoseame” (thousand year candy) to promise them
long life. We order these candies from Japan. Pictures are taken by the proud parents
for these mile stones. We will have Alan Miyatake of Toyo Miyatake Studio taking
pictures for this memorable event. Come early to take your pictures before the service.
Alan will be downstairs. All children must register with the ministers at Zenshuji.
The registration form will be available here in mid-October. Also you can ask Ms.
Akutagawa for kimono rental and/or dressing. Please call her for pricing and detail
