Chopsticks

Chopsticks are called “hashi” in Japanese.

Japanese people use chopsticks to eat basically anything.
It is only 2 skinny sticks, but you can scoop, cut, pick up and poke things with a pair of chopsticks!

Even kids start using chopsticks around 4 or 5 in Japan.
At first, kids get frustrated because it does not come naturally.
It takes practice to get used to it and be able to eat without spilling food.

【要約】
日本人は、通常、箸を使って食事をします。細い2本の棒のようなものですが、すくったり、切ったり、持ち上げたり、指したり、いろいろできる道具なのです。日本では、子供が4、5歳くらいになると箸を使い始めます。最初は、なかなかうまくいきませんが、徐々にスムーズに食事ができるようになるものです。エコ意識が高い人の中には、”マイ箸”を持ち歩く人もいるようです。
