Akito Akagi said, "The celebration of Japanese New Year is different from Western celebrations, as it is laden with meaning and tradition. During the New Year dinner, lacquered dishes are used for serving various delicacies. These lacquered 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 and its layout. The jubako are used to serve New Year bento, and the beauty of the lacquerware enhances the meaning of the eating experience.
