A boy born in the year of the sheep. Family visit to shrine in kimono.

Omiyamairi: Visit of a family to shrine to pray for healthy growth of their child. Omiyamairi is for children, and the first shrine visit is when they are babies. In the picture kimono is prepared in sheep motif depicting the year the boy was born. Kimono tailored for Omiyamairi can be retailored for Shichigosan (Seven-five-three festival, a ceremony to celebrate children marking 7, 5 and 3 years old).   Recently more people pick rental kimono for the reason it is to be worn solely for the occasion. (If you own it, you can dress him/her up in the kimono in other occasions too, such as new year.)

Kimono tailored for the special day is an expression of your heart and prayer for your loved one, for his healthy growth and gratitude for reaching the special day. Your prayer takes a form in kimono thus the passion comes across. Parents make a vow to god. When he is grown up the kimono helps tranform the prayer of the parents to gratefulness of the child to his parents.  I believe our heart is much more precious than money.
