Do you love Japan enough to want to share its way of celebrating the New Year? If you do, then the Kyugetsu New Year Decorations Screen Set is for you! Created by Kyugetsu, a company that has been making Girls' Day and Boys' Day dolls and other traditional items made of fabric since 1836, this 21 x 15 x 16 cm (8.3 x 5.9 x 6.3"), six-piece set includes some of the most common New Year celebration symbols, arranged in a visually stunning way!
Set against a gold folding screen with the characters for welcoming the New Year (read "geishun"), you get a stand called a sanpo with a pair of mochi rice cakes (called kagami mochi) and a bitter citrus fruit (called daidai) placed on it, and with a big spiny lobster (or Ise ebi) in front. The whole thing is framed by two baskets, each with three diagonally cut stalks of bamboo and a wooden plate, also with the "geishun" characters. All these are symbols of longevity and good fortune, making the Kyugetsu New Year Decorations Screen Set the best way to greet the new year!
