Well, how did you all spend your new year's day?

At the end of the year, I enjoyed a hot spring trip in Kyushu, and at the beginning of the year, I spent the New Year leisurely at home while eating New Year's dishes.

Ingredients and menus for OSECHI RYORI are filled with wishes for a bountiful harvest, good health, and prosperity for descendants.
In addition, it is made in a square box called a JUBAKO, which means "pile up happiness", and the contents of the ingredients to be put in the JUBAKO are decided.



And like OSECHI RYOR, OZONI which is eaten at the beginning of the new year, is made from rice cakes, agricultural products, and marine products that were offered to the god of the new year, which is said to bring good harvest and happiness for the year. It started with the water "WAKIMISU" stewed with the first fire of the new year.

The contents (ingredients) and taste of OZONI, the shape of mochi, and how to cook mochi vary from region to region in Japan.

By the way, in Kyoto, taro, Zoni daikon, Kintoki carrots, and round rice cakes are grilled and put in white miso zoni.

When you visit Japan for the New Year, please try various local OSECHI and OZONI. Well, thank you for your continued support in the year.
