Life in Japan - This is how an average Japanese family celebrates New Year in Japan inside their Japanese home. The typical Japanese family will all return to their Japan house and spend the time to together. A house in Japan especially the countryside is 2 stories with 3 bedrooms living room bathroom kitchen and a tatami room. During this New Year Holiday in Japan, an average Japanese family will eat Japanese New Year Foods like Osechi and Ozoni as well as traditional Japanese foods from their hometown Prefecture. Because this family's father is originally from Nagano prefecture, we ate that area's food. We also do hatsumode and visit a Japanese Shrine for the first time during the New Year. This is what an average Japanese home does during the Japan New Year Holiday. Check my Toe-Kyo hoodie Merch here - https://teespring.com/stores/paolofro... MAIKO'S MAKEUP CHANNEL (It's in Japanese with English sub) : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0Et... During New Year's in Japan, Japanese families usually gather and spend time together. Those living in major cities like Tokyo, will often return home to their respective countryside homes. Just like the Christmas Holidays in western countries. So for this New Year’s Holiday, Maiko and I decided to spend it with her family. For a Japanese New Year dinner it really depends on the family and where they live. Maiko’s family’s dinner is based on the traditional in Nagano Prefecture where her dad is from. On the menu is Toshitori-zakana, which is grilled yellowtail. Burdock, pickled octopus, marinated herring roe, Namasu, marinated bean curd, Chikuzeni which is a broiled vegetables and chicken, and lots of sashimi. Since Nagano is an inland prefecture seafood used to be considered to be a luxurious food and so it’s a must-have menu item to celebrate the New Year. And my favorite, is the chawanmushi - it’s kind of like a hot steamy egg pudding. Hatsumode is known as the first Shrine visit of the year. Maiko’s family goes at midnight so we left the house about 15mins before the New Year. It’s standard to go to the family’s local god’s shrine for hatsumode, which is usually the closest one. But it’s also ok to visit other shrines or more than one for hatsumode. If you’re in Tokyo, the main one is Meiji-Jingu. There’s something magical about being at the Shrine at midnight to welcome in the new year. If you guys ask me what to do for New Years in Japan, I suggest trying this at least once as this so much different than any New Year’s I’ve ever spent.
