During New Years it is popular to eat the special dishes called 御節料理 [osechi-ryōri].
They are packed in a Jubako box, which has several layers. Each dish has a particular meaning.
Example meanings: Prawns for long life, herring roe for fertility, ...
Japanese also eat 餅 [mochi] (rice cake) dishes. 雑煮 [zōni] (rice cake soup) is the most popular mochi dish. The ingredients vary depending on regions and families.
Japanese visit a shrine or a temple to pray for safety, health and good fortune.
The first visit to a temple or shrine in a year is called 初詣 [Hatsumōde]. Many well-known temples and shrines are extremely crowded.
Some temples and shrines expect a couple million visitors during New Year's holidays each year.
門松 [kadomatsu] is a traditional Japanese decoration of the New Year placed in pairs in front of homes to welcome ancestral spirits or kami of the harvest.
They are placed after Christmas until January 7th and are considered temporary housing for kami.
Designs for 門松 [kadomatsu] vary depending on region but are typically made of pine, bamboo, and sometimes ume tree sprigs which represent longevity, prosperity and steadfastness, respectively.
After January 15th the 門松 [kadomatsu] is burned to appease the kami or toshigami and release them.
