Hello!

I'm trying to find an answer on this question:

What does long thin pasta symbolize in Japan?

In Japan, for the New Year, food that is served on the festive table has its special meaning. For example, biscuits symbolize abundance, pea – health, and what does long thin pasta symbolize?


Does anybody knows something about Japan New Year traditions?

P.S. this question taken from worldwide puzzle game - GlobalPuzzle.

you're talking about 年越しそば (toshi koshi soba). It's long and thin to symbolize longevity.

Thank you, nice_gaijin!

This is correct answer, but another user posted correct answer first. And he was selected as winner. :(

Hope to ask you about other Japan-related questions. :)

For all, who interested - look at globalpuzzle.net.
