Nanakusa

Eat Nanakusa-gayu/kayu
Day of Rice Porridge with Seven Herbs
2017
(January 7th/annual)
Nanakusa means seven herbs, and gayu (kayu) means rice porridge.
Nanakusa-gayu is rice porridge with seven edible wild herbs of spring:
Seri (Japanese parsley), Nazuna (shepherd'd purse), Gogyo (cotton weed), Hakobera (chick weed),
Hotokenoza (henbit), Suzuna (turnip) and Suzushiro (Japanese radish).
We eat Nanakusagayu on January 7th because of the seventh of the first month
has been an important festival called "Jinjitsu no sekku (人日の節句)" since ancient times.
This habbit was introduced from China, which had been held to ward off evil.
Now in Japan, we eat it in hopes of longevity and good health,
and it's also to supply green vegetables after the osechi food.
Seri Nazuna Gogyo Hakobera Hotokenoza Suzuna Suzushiro
You can buy a set of Nanakusa.
