Osechi-Ryori おせち料理

Osechi-Ryori is a traditional Japanese dish that is eaten during the New Year. It is packed in a lacquered Jubako, or square bento box. Each ingredient has a meaning, black beans represent health, kelp rolls represent happiness, and shrimp represent longevity. In the past, Osechi-Ryori was made at home on New Year’s Eve but nowadays many people buy them at department stores or mail order stores.
