”Osechi” is specially prepared New Year’s dishes to be eaten during the first three days of January.

Various kinds of beautifully prepared dishes are set in boxes.

Most dishes are cooked in order to be preserved for at least three days.

So women don’t have to cook during that period.

Each dish and ingredient in ”Osechi” has meanings, such as good health, good harvest, happiness, prosperity, long life, and so on.

I introduce some items of ”Osechi”.

Japanese ceremony “Shichi-go-san”(Japanese lucky number part 1)

from wikipedia

“Shichi-go-san” meaning is number “7 5 3”.

November 15 is the day for Shichi-go-san as Japanese ceremony.
You can see adorable boys and girls wearing kimono in Shrines in November.

Parents take their five-year-old sons (three year olds too depending on the region), and three- and seven-year-old daughters to shrines to pray for their future health and growth while showing their appreciation for the child’s development.

This custom started from 15th of November in 1681, Edo period.
Shogun, Tsunayoshi tokugawa prayed for his son’s health and growth.

The Chinese characters for chitose-ame represent “thousand-year-old candy.”
This candy is given to children at the Shichi-go-san ceremony. Chitose-ame is a long, thin, red and white candy, which symbolizes healthy growth and longevity.
It is put in a long paper bag decorated with a crane and a turtle, which also represent long life in Japan.
