We are preparing to welcome a new year.

Kagami mochi. Main Kagamimochi placed next to Kamidana (Shintoh alter).
The ship is for Japanese main 7 gods to travel to ours.
An orange, Dai-dai in Japanese means "the generation to a generation", wishing the family prosperity.

Small Kagami-moch are for each rooms including the kitchen and the bathrooms.

Place them like this.

This is pine branch for Matsu Kazari, for gate or front door's decoration.

We are preparing Osech, dishes welcoming a new year.
This is Kazunoko (herring roe). To exclude salt, we put them in water (with bit salt in the water)
