Cooking Class Menu

Shojin Ryori : Okuizome” (first meal) is the Japanese traditional ritual that parents perform around the 100th day after the birth of their baby (in some regions, this ritual is carried out on the 110th or 120th day) along with their relatives and friends to wish the infant will never starve by sharing a celebratory meal.

The celebratory meal

Cooking Class Information

Shojin Ryori

The celebratory meal is in the traditional “one soup and three dishes” style and generally consists of rice cooked with red beans (or plain rice), whole grilled fish such as snapper, soup, ‘nimono’ (simmered food), and pickles, which are eaten with celebratory chopsticks made of willow.

In this ritual, the most senior person among the grandparents or relatives wishes a long life by pretending to feed the baby in the order of “rice, soup, rice, grilled fish, rice, and soup” and repeats this process three times.

The person performing the ritual touches a stone found at a shrine or at the waterfront with the chopsticks and then rubs their tips on the baby’s gums to wish for healthy growth of teeth.
