This was submitted by Qris Yamashita for Discover Nikkei’s Nima-kai 2020-2021 Oshogatsu Traditions photo activity.


Many things were 'taken' from us in 2020 because of the pandemic and other forces...Obon, Mochitsuki, gatherings with friends and family, etc...but it wasn't going to take Oshogatsu away from us! Normally, family and friends come to our house. Chris and I decided we would deliver "Osechi-ben" to our family and a couple of friends, so we could wish everyone a Happy New Year, in person. Though exhausted, we were happy to see everyone as it gave us hope and strength to work for a better 2021!
