Oshogatsu 2021

Licensing

In this most unusual year, Russ & I welcomed the new year at home, but “together” with my parents & Omoto cousins virtually via Zoom. We spent New Year’s Day at my parent’s house with ozoni and shabu shabu.

okasane

We set up an okasane / kagami mochi at my parent’s house. Russ got it through the JACCC, although we forgot the fern and leaf at home, so it’s missing the greenery.

We usually get together with my mother’s family on New Year’s Eve and eat shabu shabu together. Since we weren’t able to gather this year due to COVID restrictions, we decided to have it for dinner on New Year’s Day with jut our immediate family.
