Re-ment Osechi

Dear Readers,

I hope you are all enjoying your New Year celebrations!  I am already back to work today but I did have the time to set up a photo to show the new Osechi Set from Re-ment.  My Sylvanian Families Rabbits have eagerly accepted to model in their best attire ^_^


Osechi are the traditional New Year food in Japan. Osechi are presented in special boxes called jūbako (重箱), which resemble bento boxes.  They include food that have a special meaning for the New Year. 

The Osechi boxes shown above come from the newly released "March Comes in Like a Lion - Kawamoto Family Dinner".  You can read a very good and complete Review of the Full Set written by Buzz Wuzzington III Esq on the Re-ment Addict Pool on Flickr

As soon as I saw the promo photos for that collection, I decided to pre-order the full set.  There are a few webshops that allow pre-ordering but I usually get mine from AmiAmi.com.  It was much cheaper that way than to buy on Ebay (especially with the Yen been so low recently!).  I paid between $35 to $40 for almost all my full Re-ment sets thanks to pre-ordering instead of waiting for them to be sold on Ebay or Amazon.

But of course, pre-ordering means you take a risk because at that point, there are no real pictures of the miniature yet and you have to trust the promotion pictures!  So far, I have happy with all my purchases.

I will eventually take a picture of the complete set for you to see but it will have to wait for another day because today I have to be back in the office!

I wish everybody a wonderful weekend!

  6. You got the Osechi Set! It looks great with the kimono rabbits! I remember the kimono rabbits are from SF 25th anniversary products? I haven't opened them yet. And I didn't buy the the Osechi Set so I am still considering ordering them...

    1. Yes the Rabbits are from the 25th anniversary set. I bought it from England. The osechi set is really beautiful. The complete collection is however not so great. I will eventually write a blog post about it. It was not a total letdown but I was disappointed in the quality of some pieces.
