Around this time of year, we see many nicely dressed parents and relatives with dressed up children in all the shrines. For, this is the time for Shichi-Go-San festival when people celebrate the growth of children. It takes place on or around November 15.

(a festival for 3-year-old boys and girls, 5-year-old boys and 7-year-old girls), which originally meant to wish for the children’s healthy growth and happiness and set on the November 15th, seems to become more and more important and glamorous. Even for me, my parents dressed me in a kimono and took me to that famous shrine. It was long time ago, but I still have some photos of myself in kimono.
The photos here show the trees of autumn foliage on the shrine’s premise.
