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


Oshogatsu is the favorite time of the year for the Iwataki family. It is a special day for our family to share love, celebrate the New Year, and honor past family members through sharing memories, stories and delicious Osechi dishes steeped in family history.

It is a day rooted in Japanese American culture. A day none of us has ever missed. A time to bring out exquisite Japanese platters that enhance the beauty and umami of Osechi. It is a day of love and laughter.
