Chopsticks often appear in popular culture. In movies and shows, people are often shown having difficulty using chopsticks for the first time.

Anime characters like Goku have big appetites and use chopsticks to shovel food into their mouths!

Whether you're traveling abroad or visiting a local restaurant, here are some tips for eating with chopsticks:

  • You can use chopsticks by balancing one between your thumb and middle finger the same way you do a pencil. Hold the second chopstick between your thumb and pointer finger. Flex your pointer finger to move the top chopstick, grasping food between the points.
  • Did your mother ever tell you not to play with your food? Don't play with your chopsticks, either! This includes drumming on the table, pointing at someone, spearing pieces of food, or scratching an itch.
  • Don't leave chopsticks standing up in a bowl or pass food from one person's chopsticks to another. These actions are related to funeral rites and are considered rude at mealtime.
  • If taking something from a shared serving dish, use the "wrong" end of the chopsticks, not the end you put in your mouth.
  • What do you do with the soup in your bowl? You can't pick that up with chopsticks. In Japan, noisy slurping is acceptable!
