Today is the day to eat the seven herb rice porridge or “nanakusa- gayu” on the morning of January 7th in Japan. I made it in this morning.
The seven herb rice was introduced from China and then became popular in Japan by Edo period. It’s original intention is to protect oneself against evils and invite good luck and longerity by eating the seven herbs that endure the cold winter.
Wishing good health a year!
