Celebrate and Experience Shichi-Go-San at The School by Jaya One

Japanese festival will be an eye-opening cultural experience that will bring families together with young children together

The School will once again host Shichi-Go-San, a Japanese traditional rite of passage for three- and seven-year-old girls and three- and five-year-old boys. The rite’s customary prayer ceremony will be conducted by special guest, Takebe Masahide, a shrine priest from Ikimi Tenmangu, the oldest shrine in Kyoto, Japan. Parents can look forward to bringing their children to learn and experience this cultural festival on 4th and 5th November at The School by Jaya One from 10am to 6pm daily.
“We are thrilled to host this festival for the second time. The Japanese culture is beautiful and strong in bringing families and communities together, which is something that The School stands for. We hope this family affair is a fun, educational way for kids to learn about other cultures and nurture their curiosity,” said Charles Wong, Executive Director of Tetap Tiara Sdn Bhd, the developer of The School by Jaya One.


Traditionally, Shichi-Go-San is held annually on 15 November where parents would take their children to shrines to perform a prayer for their health. During the ceremony, the girls would dress in Kimonos and the boys in Hakama trousers with Haori jackets and carry a long stick candy thin candy known as “chitose-ame”, believed to bring good luck. It usually comes in a bag decorated with cranes and turtles to symbolise long life.
The symbolic 2-day event will have The School transformed into a Japanese-themed setting, ideal for family photo taking, and will feature various activities, fit for all children to participate in including kimono dressing, origami and flute classes, soba and sushi making classes, Japanese arts and craft, Japanese Folks Dance & Kid Culture Dance and many more. There will also be a tuna and salmon cutting show and an auction where parents have the chance to bid for their favourite slice.

The festival is supported by the Embassy of Japan in Malaysia, I Am Nikon, Yaezakura Japanese Traditional Music & Dance Group, Jetro and Gemini Creation.
