【鏡餅・kagami mochi】"mirror rice cake" . Kagami mochi, a Japanese New Year decoration, is an offering to the 年神 (toshigami) yearly deity that visits during the New Years period, bringing good harvest and blessing for the year. . The decoration is two round, mirror-shaped rice cakes (round mirrors are considered to be holy in Japan) with a 橙 daidai (bitter orange) on top.🍊 . The orange is traditionally a daidai (and not a mikan) because when daidai trees bear fruit, the fruit stays on the branch for two to three years—hence named "daidai" (代々)which means "generation after generation". . January 11th is the day of 鏡開き (kagami biraki), a ceremony to open (or break) the kagami mochi and enjoy the offering—typically in a ぜんざい (zenzai) or おしるこ (oshiruko), a sweet azuki bean soup. . 開く (hiraku) = to open . #日本語 #にほんご #study #nihongo #japanese #japan #food #japanesefood #nihongoflashcards #japanesecustoms #newyear #happy2017 #鏡餅 #鏡開き #ぜんざい #おしるこ #azuki #redbean #mochi

【焼き芋・yakiimo】baked sweet potato (焼きいも、やきいも) . Purple on the outside, bright yellow on the inside, sweet and ホクホク (hokuhoku = a term to describe the fluffy texture of roasted potatoes). . The typical やきいも is baked サツマイモ (satsumaimo = sweet potato)🍠 . We don't have ice cream trucks in Japan but we have 焼き芋屋さん (yakiimo-ya san) yakiimo trucks in the winter selling warm 石焼きいも (ishiyakiimo = stone-baked sweet potato). . Instead of a jingle, the driver sings「い〜しや〜きいも〜」(i-shi ya-ki-imo-) through a megaphone. 🎶📢 . #日本語 #にほんご #study #nihongo #japanese #japan #food #japanesefood #nihongoflashcards #endofyear #yearend #winter #december #sweetpotato #satsumaimo #yam #yakiimo

【 弁当包み・bento wrap 】包む (tsutsumu) = to wrap . The classic way of wrapping a bento is with a 風呂敷 (furoshiki, a wrapping cloth), 手拭い (tenugui, a cotton cloth towel) or a large handkerchief. . 唐草 (karakusa) is a traditional ivy arabesque pattern used in textiles like furoshiki and decorative arts. The continuous vine is a symbol of longevity and prosperity. . So why are burglars depicted with this pattern in Japanese cartoons and comedy? . Back in the day, almost every home had a karakusa furoshiki so burglars would go in empty-handed, look for the furoshiki, and use it to wrap and carry away the stolen goods. 👀 . #日本語 #にほんご #study #nihongo #japanese #hiragana #kanji #illustration #japan #food #japanesefood #bento #bentobox #japanesebento #お弁当 #furoshiki

The translucent kanten jelly and fruit make it a refreshing summer dessert. . あんみつ (anmitsu) is mitsumame with anko . クリームあんみつ is anmitsu + ice cream . *agar and kanten come from different algae . #日本語 #にほんご #nihongo #japanese #illustration #japan #japanesesweets #japanesedessert #和菓子 #wagashi #みつまめ #mitsumame #jelly #fruitbowl #mochi #azuki #summerdessert
