November 15 is "Shichi-Go-San (Seven-Five-Three) Festival"
When parents with girls of seven, boys of five,
and either boys or girls of three dress their children in nice clothes
such as kimono or dress or suit and take them to shrines
where they pray for their children's fortunate future.
Kids usually get a long candy after they go to shrine.

Since Daisy's 7 years old and Ariel is 3 years old,
we tried to take some photos of them in a kimono.
The kimono they're wearing is the replica of the upper most layer
of many layers that noble women wore in Heian Period. (9-12 century) .

Where are our candies, mom?
