Welcome in the New Year with classic Japanese New Year dishes, or osechi ryori. Kuri kinton is a sweeter osechi ryori dish, made by combining mashed satsuma imo (Japanese sweet potatoes) with candied chestnuts. Once made, the dish has a distinct golden yellow colour, which symbolises wealth, prosperity, and good luck. This makes kuri kinton a particularly important New Year's dish, as well as a tasty one.
