Modern Customs Hakamagi Ceremony, 1895

Comments - Handsome scene of a women preparing for a hakamagi, a ceremony where a child at the age of five first wears pants called hakama. The ritual takes place during the Shichigosan or Seven-Five-Three Festival, a rite of passage celebrating the growth and health of children ages seven, five, and three. Here, a woman carries a platter of fish on a tray, pausing to chat with a companion in the garden. At right, an alcove holds a scroll featuring the Lucky God Ebisu. A charming design with a nicely detailed setting. Includes burnishing on the black coat.
