I spent a lot less time making it this year.

Perhaps practice does help after all [this is my 3rd year making the entire thing by myself]

Some of you asked on instagram how i make such a tiny portion of each element.
Well i dont XD a lot of the stuff i make doesnt fit in the jubako container but we eat it too XD
The jubako is more presentation XD See here is a photo of us eating the leftovers for dinner.

  1. This looks SO CUTE. I miss having new years in Japan. Way better than any other new years I had elsewhere, I have to say!

    aww u are super sweet!
    its not, i soak all the items including the boxes overnight in soapy water [its not good to scrub the lacquer pieces in case it gets scratched]
    hope this helps!
