Nanakusa
七草
Eat Nanakusa-gayu/kayu
Day of Rice Porridge with Seven Herbs
2019
(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 Heian Period.
This seasonal festival 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
These are biennial plants. Japanese winters are brutal, but they stand the cold.
So, this custom contains a wish for good health.
You can buy a set of Nanakusa.Recipe

Day for commemorating the foundation of the nation and for fostering patriotic feelings.

Kenkoku Kinen no Hi (建国記念の日)was called "Kigensetsu(紀元節)" before.
According to the Japanese historical legend, the Emperor Jinmu, the first Emperor of Japan,
ascended the throne on this day in the year 660BC. It was designated as Japan's Foundation Day
and became holiday by the Meiji Government in 1872.
The holiday was abolished after the World War II by the view of the occupation forces,
but was revived in 1966 as "Kenkoku Kinen no Hi/ The Memorial Day of the National Foundation", and executed from1967.
So this day is not a historical foundation day. Just the day to celebrate the fact that the nation was established.
