Japanese chopsticks are the essential culinary utensil in the land of the rising sun. Their origin dates back to the 7th century. They are also called “hashi."Widely used in Japan, their use even extends to a third of the world's population. That said, this trend has been decreasing since the end of the Second World War and the westernization of the countries of the East.

The top of these wooden chopsticks is decorated with a pattern typical of the archipelago: koi carp. This freshwater fish symbolizes power because, in Japanese legend, it is capable of going up rivers. The carp pattern is widely used in the Irezumi art of traditional tattooing. It represents success and sometimes also manhood.

Here are some tips to make the best use of these Japanese cutlery:

🥢 If you've never used bamboo chopsticks during an Asian meal, follow our two-step method: place the first wand between the palm of your hand (at the base of the thumb) and your ring finger, making sure to leave it still. The second stick is removable, settles in the hollow and between the middle and ring fingers to be able to pinch food.

🥢 Culturally speaking, the use of Asian chopsticks respects several codes to know and apply such as holding them with your left hand, not planting them in a dish or worse, in rice, not licking them and using a baguette rest rather than placing them on the table.

🥢 If you don't want to look rude, we do not recommend pointing someone with Japanese chopsticks and recommend using a spoon if you want to transfer some of your food to another plate.
