The Japanese celebrate the New Year Day with traditional New Year’s foods called Osechi Ryori (おせち料理). It’s considered the most important meal of the year as each dish serves as well-wishes for the coming year. So, what is Osechi Ryori? Similar to bento boxes, Osechi Ryori is stacked in 2-3 layers (4 for me!) of lacquer boxes (jubako) & there’s many dishes in each layer. The multi-tiered boxes symbolize the hope that happiness & wealth come continuously, like the layers of lacquerware.

    Great Video ERIC !! Happy New Year Brother… food looked so good. Here is a question i've always wondered. When people hold there hot tea why do they put the bottom of the cup flat on there hand, holding it with two hands. It looks more graceful that way, I've was just curious. Thanks #teamgetsome
