Child Celebration

This family came to the Kasuga Grand Shrine in Nara to celebrate the girl's healthy growth.  This is a custom called 'Seven Five Three" still living in Japan. Three-year-old boys and girls, five-year-old boys and seven-year-old girls are taken to Shinto shrines by their parents to celebrate their growth. Many children wear traditional kimono for this celebration. This girl's kimono and sash are so gorgeous. Her hair style too.
This is part of Ruby Tuesday 2.
