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.
