Shichi-go-San Ceremony: Yokosuka

Extremely lucky to have gotten to photograph this for Micah and his family. Such a beautiful event in Japan. In October, you can visit any shrine and you will see either 3, 5, 7 year old children dressed in kimonos for the first time, each undergo a ritual ceremony that dates back hundreds of years.
