Embrace the Japanese culinary style with these handcrafted Japanese chopsticks

The origin of Japanese chopsticks or “hashi"dates back to the 7th century. Used in other countries such as China in the 12th century BC, its use quickly crossed borders to settle in Japan and become a kitchen utensil adopted by all.

The term wagara refers to traditional Japanese motifs. These historical drawings have symbolic meanings and are often used in all aspects of Japanese culture: decoration, cooking , clothing, art, crafts... The wagara patterns on these chopsticks are in bluish tones, a spiritual color in the land of the rising sun.

Here are our tips for using Japanese chopsticks correctly:

🥢 If you're not used to holding chopsticks , here's a simple method: position the first chopstick in the palm of your hand at the base of your thumb and hold it still with your ring finger. Then place the second stick between your thumb, index finger and middle finger and then make the movement of a clamp by moving this second stick.

🥢 To serve Japanese chopsticks in the right way, use your left hand, do not stick your chopsticks in food, do not lick them and put them on a chopstick rest (or hashi oki) when you are no longer using them.

🥢 Also, wooden chopsticks do not lend themselves to it. It is also very frowned upon to point someone with it. It is as incorrect as pointing the finger at someone in France. Finally, don't use it to transfer food from one bowl to another: the spoon is made for that.
