Middle of Showa: Wedding in Japan

This was taken at the wedding of my grandparents Yoshikazu and Sayoko.
“San-san-kudo” is a Japanese wedding ritual to exchange and drink a cup of sake in three times.

It was the first marriage for Yoshikazu but the second time for Sayoko.
Sayoko even had two children, so both families didn’t agree with them at first.
As far as I remember, they were happily together.

3rd February 1955
