Super Mario Osechi Ryouri


During New Year’s in Japan, people eat a special type of bento called osechi ryouri (お節料理). This year, Nintendo is ready to 1UP that traditional cuisine with Mario and friends.

In the past, Japanese business, including food markets, would completely shut down for New Year’s (Hey, it’s the holidays). The Japanese would eat Osechi, serving the food in stacked bento boxes, to celebrate their New Year’s holidays. Each food served in osechi has meanings: shrimp represent elderly people, because they are hunched over, while beans, or mame (豆), are included, because the word mame (忠実) can mean “healthy” or “loyal.”

Website Culture Lab reports that for 2016, Japanese department store Takashimaya will have Super Mario osechi ryouri, which references the iconic Nintendo games. The bento comes with special Super Mario cards, and might be more kid-friendly than your typical New Year’s food. It’s priced at 27,000 yen (US$225). That’s expensive (Takashimaya is a fancy department store with fancy prices), but remember that this special food is supposed to be eaten over the course of several days.

Are you willing to eat this adorable art?
