Akito Akagi said, "Though entirely different from Western celebrations, one of the principal ways of celebrating Japanese New Year is laden with meaning and tradition, but in the form of something neat you can eat. These dishes are known as osechi (お節料理); served in a set of lacquered boxes known as “jubako” (重箱), there is a rich history to each cubby (even the layout!) to these special New Year bento, with layered connotations to each bite."
