Osechi (or osechi-ryori) are traditional special foods for new year.
Originally, those were made at each home.
But in these days, many people buy it.

Thanks, JM.
"Osechi" are not sweet.

I had to look up the meaning of osechi and ended up reading quite a lot about it. It's a wonderful custom! I'd love to be able to do something like this for New Year, but using Tagalog or English words as the basis. This is going to take a lot of research — maybe I'll be ready to do it for 2010. Thank you, Nobu!

These look very interesting - it's something worth exploring for on the Internet - and I'm really happy to learn more about Japan. Bye and greetings from Croatia.
