Shichi-Go-San literally seven-five-three, is a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan for three and seven year-old girls and five year-old boys, held annually on November 15. As Shichi-Go-San is not a national holiday, it is generally observed on the nearest weekend. Boys who are aged three or five and girls who are aged three or seven are still dressed in kimono, many for the first time, for visits to shrines. Western-style formal wear is also worn by some children.
