Toshikoshi-soba
Buckwheat noodles eaten
on New Year's Eve.2017
We Japanese people eat
buckwheat noodles
(soba in Japanese)
on New Year's Eve.
This custom was
already
an established custom
by the Edo period
(1603-1868).
Toshikoshi means to see the
old year out and the New Year in.
We have to eat it before January
1st.
Some people believe that eating
the soba after the start of the
new year bring bad luck.

<There are several reason why
we eat soba
on the last day of the year>
1.Buckwheat noodles
are long and thin. It
leads the belief that if
one eats soba he/she
will get a long and
prosperous life.
People also wish their
family's good fortune
will continue long (like
soba nodles)
throughout the
coming year.

2. In the Edo period , soba cake
was
used by goldsmiths when they
collect flied gold leaf. Then soba
symbolizes the wealth.
3. Soba is cut easily. People want
to cut off bad luck and trouble
of this year.
4. Year-end is always very busy
and soba is easy to eat.

morning of Jan. 1st,

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.
