1. This looks like a New Year’s Day visit to a shrine with street food stalls. The little girl must be wearing Kimono under a Western top because she is wearing zori footwears. Her hair style also suggests that she is wearing kimono. But it’s not a “traditional formal Kyoto hair style” you used to see at Shichigosan ceremony but slightly more casual with interesting hair decoration. So her hair must have been done at home. I wonder if the lady who is holding her is her mother or aunt as she appears in other photos with another woman who looks similar to her.
