Kagami Biraki is an event of eating Kagami Mochi at the end of the New Year, and we usually do it on January 11th. Kagami Mochi is two-round piled up rice cakes, and we decorate them in our house during the new year holiday to welcome the god of new year.
Nanakusagayu is salt taste rice porridge made by what we call spring seven wild herbs. It is supposed to cleanse our stomach which has been filled with heavy meals during the new year’s holiday. If we have Nanakusagayu for breakfast on the 7th, we are said to have good health for the rest of the year.
