A : Next question, what happens on New Year's Day?
At first, I cook "zoni" containing rice cakes, Japanese radish and carrots. There are mainly two types of "zoni", a thick one and a light one. I cook thick "zoni" which is made from miso, which is fermented soybean paste. Then we eat gorgeous dishes called "osechi-ryori". There are many vegetables in it.
A : Please talk about something other than food. Do you do something on New Year's Day?
Sorry. We go to shrines to pray for our health and our families' health.
A : OK. Thank you. That's it.
