Ethans first visit to the Shrine. His presentation to the gods. Today is a lucky day so lots of families with their newborns in the special outfits and capes.

    Wow, there are so many interesting cultural points to learn from our newly-minted families!

    It was amazing as there were a heap of families there all doing the same thing.  The little outfits (basically a special childs kimono tied up around the grandmother and the child) are all rented - over the internet no less. Book them in advance and it is posted to you.  You return it by post after the event.

    What an interesting an unique event. Like a Christening? Ethan cannot be seen very well in this photo because of all the wrapping. Barbara

    It was a “presentation to the gods” rather than a christening. A truly Japanese experience involving dressing up, eating and paying money to the shrine.
