Happy 2012, Year of the Dragon!!!

I went back to Shimane to celebrate New Year. My mother and I were working together to prepare the New Year's food called "Osechi" for a few days. It is Japanese tradition to eat soba noodle on New Year's Eve.

After having eaten soba noodle, we arranged our New Year's food on plates. This is the plate of vegetables.

And this is the plate of mainly seafood.

On the morning of New Year's day, we toasted with a sake drink called "Otoso" first, and then had a rice cake soup called "Zoni" which is another special New Years' food.

I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2012!!!

Dear Miho, I would love to come to see cherry blossom in Kyoto, but do not know if I can. Until then, I read with pleasure a book by Eiji Yoshikawa, Taiko. And I enjoy it very much. I hope to see more posts from you soon.
