New Year's dish, Osechi Ryori

Osechi Ryori, Kyoto sightseeing
This is our dish in a New Year Day, Osechi-Ryori, consisting of vegetables, beans, eggs, kelp, fish and meat. The chicken soup in the photo, Ozoni, is also for a new year day and is consisted of some vegetable, including red carrot, and chicken. Close to the chopstick is a red dish covered with urushi lacquer and we enjoy drinking Japanese sake with it, saying each other "a happy new year."

This cuisine and soup, like miso soup, are rather different from the regions in Japan.

PS. Here is a detailed and informative explanation of Japanese New Year in Spanish, Cultura Japonesa
