Shichi Go San (7-5-3) is a traditional ceremony to appreciate the passage of children into their middle childhood. Boys at their age of 3 and 5, girls at 3 and 7, in their festive dresses attend the ceremony, accompanied by their parents and grand parents. The old times when medical treatments weren’t accessible for many people, to survive those infant eras of their very early life were filled with serious challenges and dangers. That’s why at the symbolic age of 3, 5, and 7, their parents and grand parents had a responsibility to report their kids’ safe-growth-so-far to the local deities, Buddhas, and the community with the sincere heart of Okagesama (thanks to you).
