Yes, as Ms. Harris says, very well done and interesting.

Someone commenting on this year's "don't choke on mochi" article mentioned that osechi is from the less appealing of the many wonderful Japanese foods. That made me think. I have always liked the tradition of it, but now that you mention it, there are lots more tasty foods than the ones featured in the beautiful stacked ojyuubako. That commenter also said the foods were from Meiji era, and that made me also wonder about how old these traditions are.

Sending love and prayers from Philadelphia. Moved with my family to Yatsushiro in 1959 as a child and my parents lived there until I was almost out of high school. Relieved to see that so far no casualties from this quake.
