19 dishes you can find in traditional Japanese New Year food

A traditional local New Year’s food known as osechi-ryori is commonly consumed on New Year’s Day (which is referred to in Japanese as “Ganjitsu”). Osechi-ryori, or often called just “osechi,” is a food that consists of various colourful dishes.

As the New Year symbolizes a new beginning, osechi-ryori consists of food with auspicious meanings. The dishes are stored in a three or four-tiered container called “Jubako.” On Ganjitsu, people are not supposed to work, including the housewives. Hence, osechi is prepared in advance for Ganjitsu.
