This was submitted by Ayumi Amama for Discover Nikkei’s Nima-kai 2020-2021 Oshogatsu Traditions photo activity.


Living in the US, Osechi is quite hard for me to prepare and for our kids to enjoy. So we simplify our Oshogatsu’s first family meal to Ozohni, all contents prepared from scratch. We enjoy preparing each element that goes in it thoughtfully, and assembling each bowl customized for each family members.

Ayumi Amama's son, Michael, took this photo of Ayumi assembling Ozohni.
