753 (Shichi-go-san)

18.Nov.2005

- Seven in Japanese = Shichi (or Nana)
- Five in Japanese = Go
- Three in Japanese = San

So 753 is pronounced in Japanese as "Shichi Go San", and Shichi-go-san is the festival day for children aged seven, five and three.

Today I had the festival!

I have a special candy in my hand called "Chitose ame" which is made especially for Shichi-go-san.
