Shichi Go San 753
Japanese children climbing the stairs at Shichi-Go-San - a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan for three and five and seven year olds, held annually on November 15. Since Shichi-Go-San is not a national holiday, it is observed on the nearest weekend. Kids are still dressed in kimono, many for the first time, for visits to shrines. Western-style formal wear is also worn by some children.
