Shichigosan: Change and Continuity of a Family Ritual in Contemporary Urban Japan

Shichigosan: Change and Continuity of a Family Ritual in Contemporary Urban Japan

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1137565373 | 262 Pages | PDF | 7.0 MB

This book presents a case study of shichigosan, an extremely popular childhood family ritual in contemporary Japan. It is an interesting example of a custom with very ancient roots (going back to the tenth century), that has undergone several transformations during the course of its history, adapting to changing socio-economic and cultural circumstances. Within the study, the ritual unfolds as a shared platform where basic social values, views on children and family life, and individual perceptions emerge, are expressed and moulded at the same time. This book offers a multidisciplinary approach to the study of a ritual practice in the intensely urbanized context of present-day Japan.
