“Okuizome” (first meal) is the Japanese traditional ritual that parents perform around the 100th day after the birth of their baby along with their family and relatives (sometimes friends, too) to wish the baby will never starve by sharing a celebratory meal.
The celebratory meal is in the traditional “one soup and three dishes (一汁三菜）” style and generally consists of Osekihan (rice cooked with red beans), whole grilled fish such as snapper, soup, Nimono (simmered food), and pickles, which are eaten with celebratory chopsticks made of willow.
We prepared Osekihan, Chikuzen-ni (simmered vegetables & chicken), Miso soup with shijimi, Simmered snapper, Pickled plum.
Visited Rikugien to see autumn leaves. Rikugien Garden is a traditional Japanese garden and Tokyo metropolitan park in Bunkyo-ku (one of the 23rd districts in Tokyo). The name of Rikugien means Garden is Six Principles of Poetry. This garden was specified as a special place of scenic beauty by the Japanese government in 1953. This place is the closest from my house, so my family and I love to go there some times. We brought onigiri from home and enjoyed lunch time there.
