10-13-13 Hakone Japanese Garden - Shichi-Go-San Festival
« on: August 23, 2013, 08:36:02 PM »
Shichi-Go-San (7-5-3 Festival)
Sunday, October 13th
11 AM - 5 PM
Shichi-Go-San (Seven-Five-Three) is a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan for three- and seven-year-old girls and three- and five-year-old boys. The ages 3, 5 and 7 are consistent with East Asian numerology, which claims that odd numbers are lucky.

Come and join us at Hakone to celebrate this special occasion. We will be holding a special event for children of the ages 3, 5, and 7.  Bring your children to participate in activities such as Kimono dressing and photo shoots. We would be delighted to have you join us in wishing these children a long, healthy, and prosperous life.
