Celebrate Japan’s Oshogatsu Holiday with Ozoni


Marc shares his family's recipe for Ozoni below

The harvest is over, winter has set in, and we’re reaching the end of the calendar year. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, it’s a time when decorations go up, children receive gifts, and families gather together to share a meal.

Japan’s equivalent is called Oshogatsu, and it’s celebrated on the first day of the New Year. While Western influences have turned Christmas into a pseudo-holiday in Japan, Oshogatsu is still the holiday when families head over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house.
