Shichi, go, san in Tokyo: The Kids' First 'Coming of Age' Ceremony

Last weekend I was out doing a tour for a couple of folks in town from the US and we headed to a shrine I know in Monzen-nakacho. out in the east of Tokyo. The actual neighbourhood is called Tomioka and it has two shrines which are always good at any festival time.

No disappointments last Saturday, with lots of parents out with their kids dressed in colourful kimono.
