Happy New Year! Our 2022 Osechi Japanese New Year’s Food.

Me and my son learned something new about Osechi this year from this children’s book about Japanese culture. 和の行事を楽しむ絵本 @nagaokashoten_kodomo

Gomame – Candied Serdines. These represent abundant harvest.

Shrimp – Wishes for longevity (wishes for living until you look like one of the old people with their hunched backs)

Datemaki – Sweet Egg Rolls. They represent Japanese old scrolls used as books; thus, they’re made to wish for expanding knowledge and cultural knowledge.

My son also enjoyed writing a Japanese New Year’s card for his grandparents in Japan. It’s Tora (tiger) year this year. His wish for 2022 is to finally visit Japan and see his grandparents after almost three years😭

The family games we did this year are as follows:
A New Year card game called Karuta. Karuta is like an ABC card game. You match the sound of the first letter of a card with the matching written letter. We love the Totoro movie so used Totoro’s Karuta that is a collection of the chatacters’ saying. A great fun way of using language repetition, association and reading practice! @ghibliusa @ghibliuk
&
Funny game called Fukuwarai which is basically like Pin-the-Tail -on-Black Cat but in a Japanese New Year version.

Oh and we took advantage of the ongoing rainy New Year days in Hawaii by having kids play in the puddles as much as they wanted!

Hope you and your family has been having a wonderful 2022 New Year’s holiday!
