I went to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu in Kamakura, the same place I went to on New Year's Eve. All the girls looked beautiful and were wearing special kimono called furisode (振袖), and apparently it's the most formal type of kimono that unmarried women can wear.
This was a fairly quick trip. Julie stayed in the car with the kids and I ran out and snapped pictures with both of our cameras! It was a beautiful ceremony, and I wish I could understand what they were saying!
I took pictures of families a lot that afternoon, and some of them let me take a picture with my own camera. Love it!
