Japanese New Year breakfast

Setting up a small part of a light Japanese breakfast

No breakfast is complete without sake, I guess

In Japan you eat "toshi koshi soba" ("passing the year soba noodles") on New Year's Eve, and you eat "osechi ryouri" on the morning/lunch of January 1. Osechi is a number of traditional dishes, mainly based on strange puns. You eat beans ("mame") to become a more serious person (also "mame", though a different Chinese character) during the new year etc.


More sushi
Breakfast beer, and pickles
