So many cultures boast amazing New Year’s good luck foods, and Japan is no different! In fact, Japan has amazing traditions and rich symbolism when it comes to dishes for the New Year celebration, which is after all, the most important holiday in Japan. These special dishes which are offerings to deities, are called Osechi Ryori and they carry wishes for health and happiness for the next year.
We at Bento&co especially love this tradition because a beautiful type of multi-tiered bento box called Jyubako, plays a central role in this meal. The food is served in these stackable boxes to represent layers of good luck and blessing piling up! Learn more here.
