Los Angeles, CA 90012

Shichi-Go-San is a traditional rite of passage for girls of three (san) and seven (shichi) years and boys of three (san) and five (go) years old. The tradition is said to have originated in the Heian Period (794-1185) amongst the court nobles and over time passed to the samurai class. By the Edo period (1603-1868), the rite was adopted amongst the commoners and included visiting a shrine or temple to offer prayers (long and healthy life) for the children.

The Shichi-Go-San service will be held on Sunday. At the service, prayers will be offered for the children and the fire ritual (goma) will be conducted. Those who register for the prayer service will receive a talisman (omamori) and Chitose-ame ('thousand-year' candy). The registration fee is $30 per child.
