We will also have Nihonshu (sake) to toast the New Year, beer for his dad, sparkling wine for the rest of us and sweets as his mom loves sweets.
New Year's eve.....traditionally people eat soba so I'm guessing at the supermarket soba will be everywhere! The other day when we went down the instant noodle aisle all the instant soba noodles were sold out! I will buy some soba for my honey on the 31st. Then, we will watch some crazy Japanese TV including the big K-1 fights. Here is a link to the fights for that night http://www.k-1.co.jp/en/event/2009/1231_dynamite/index.html Some of the tickets go for $10,000 and they are all sold out!
I'm off to do some accounting so I can hand everything over to my accountant soon!
