2022 - 2023 SHICHI-GO-SAN PHOTO SESSIONSin Burlingame (七五三の撮影会)

The Japan Society is currently holding Shichi-Go-San Photo Sessions in Burlingame. We pay very close attention to hygiene and follow all COVID-19 guidelines. We can’t handle many cases a day, since we require a certain amount of time between families for cleaning and to avoid overlap.  Pricing starts at $400, with a portion of the fee donated to the Society. Interested? Please feel free to contact us!

ジャパン・ソサエティでは、七五三の撮影会をBurlingame のスタジオにてゆるく実施しています。ガイドラインに沿って衛生面に細心の注意を払いファミリーとファミリーとの時間をあけて着付け・撮影しております。お気軽にご連絡ください!

Shichi-go-san means seven-five-three and represents the ages of the kids being celebrated as they reach certain milestones. It is from the Meiji Era (1868-1912) when parents brought their kimono-clad children—girls, ages three and seven; and boys, age three and five—to Shintō shrines and prayed for their children to have long and prosperous lives.

Today, this coming-of-age custom has evolved to encompass all children regardless of their age. Children can dress up in elegant kimono and zōri (sandals) and capture the day with a professional photograph at this traditional event.

ジャパン・ソサエティでは、七五三の撮影会を Burlingame で開催いたします。由緒ある呉服屋さんの長女でもあり子供撮影の経験豊富な Masami さんが、綺麗に丁寧にお子様の身丈にあった寸法に調節し、本格的な着付けコーディネートをいたします。また、撮影を担当するのは、Burlingame で有名なDawdy Photography です。ファミリー全員での撮影もオッケー。$400 からのスタートで、収益の一部はジャパンソサエテーへのドネーションとなります。

数年前、日本に帰国するタイミングを逃し、子供の七五三の撮影をしたいのにアメリカではできるところが非常に限定的で、子供の晴れの着物の写真を撮って記念に残してあげられないことに罪悪感を感じました。おじいちゃん、おばあちゃんたちにも送ってあげたかったし。どこかベイエリアでやってくれるところがあったらなあ、と切に実感したのがきっかけです。そんな中、友達が着物を貸してくれ、着付けもしてくれて無事写真が撮れたときには本当にありがたかった!また、「嫁と子供だけが帰国した際に撮影した。自分は写真に入っていない。こんなかわいそうなパパが減るといいな。」とコメントしてくれたパパ友や駐在員の方々の声も実現にむけて後押しすることになりました。

ママ友パパ友のみなさま、ご同僚にも展開いただけますと幸いです。どうぞよろしくお願いします!
