It is said that June 6th, 6-year- and 6-month-old is the best to start lessons of Japanese culture. This keiko-hajime (=start of lessons) tradition comes from “風姿花伝 (fushi-kaden)” written by the great noh actor and producer 世阿弥 (Ze-A-Mi, 1363-1443). He mentions how significant a good commencement is in music and dance.
