You love sushi, but how good are you when it comes to using chopsticks? These tools are the typical silverware offered at Japanese restaurants because they are the primary eating tools in Japanese culture.
As you will see in this video, proper technique and etiquette is important for feeling comfortable and confident when dining in your favorite Japanese restaurant. Start by placing the bottom chopstick on your ring finger to keep it in place while you eat. The top chopstick is held in place by your thumb, index finger, and middle finger, and is the one that actually moves while you bring food from the place to your mouth.
Practicing your chopstick technique will help you become a master! Head out to your favorite San Jose Japanese restaurantto order sushi, teppanyaki, or other tasty foods that you can eat using your chopsticks.
