Shichi-Go-San Photo Session Event

Capture special life moments while wearing Kimono

2022 SHICHI-GO-SAN PHOTO SESSIONS in 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!

Photo Gallery

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.
