CHASEN KUYO 茶筅供養

 

Zenshuji cordially invites you to the annual Zenshuji Chasen Kuyo Tea Ceremony & Vegetarian Luncheon on Sunday, November 3rd from 11am. The registration form will be here soon.

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 to register.

 

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 at 805-404-7635.
