111003-0009 - First Shrine Visit

PURCHASE A LICENSE

Outside Taisho 1910s Unknown
Japanese Marriage: A newborn baby is brought to the local shinto shrine for the first time. Parents announce the baby’s birth to the local deity and pray for the baby’s well-being. For baby boys this was traditionally done 31 days after birth, while for girls it was 32 days.

There are several names for this custom: o-miyamairi, hatsumiya-mairi and hatsumiya-mode.

This image comes from a series of cards about Japanese marriage customs.

Original text (Card 14): “Shrine visiting. Bride’s relative going to a shrine in order to supplicate divine blessings on her baby.”
