These ducks are dressed better than us! 

Butchy and Moko, the elegant pet ducks of Japan, get dressed in Kimonos and head off to the shrine "Naki-Iegamo Jinja" for "Shichigosan". 

Duck owners, RyuzoArts clarified in the description, "Shichigosan is the festival for children who are 3, 5 and 7 years-old. We pray their health and growth in shrines." (What about 4 and 6 year old's? Are they excluded from the festivities? Seems odd... punny, no?)

Butchy is dressed in the black Hakama, and Moko in a pink kimono with a ribbon.  

Don't they look adorable?
