Traditional kimono dressing at JCCH Sunday
Advertiser StaffAt Shichi Go San, Sunday, Nov. 11, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai'i , children can dress up in elegant kimono and zÿri (sandals) and capture the day with a professional photograph.
Shichi Go San, literally translated as "seven, five, three," stems from the Meiji Era (1868-1912) when parents brought their kimono-clad children girls, ages 3 and 7; and boys, age 3 and 5 Shinto shrines on Nov. 15 and prayed for their children to have long and prosperous lives. This year, children are invited to don traditional kimono and pose for a portrait taken by a professional photographer.
Cost/entry Fee: $56 per JCCH member; $70 per non-member. Photographs are a separate cost. Makeup and hair dressing are not included.
