Here are some simple rules that you can follow next time you dine in a traditional Japanese restaurant or home.


Do say "itadakimasu" just before you eat. It means "I gratefully receive".

Do slurp your miso soup straight out of the bowl by lifting it up to your mouth. This helps cool down the soup as you eat it, and it also makes you sound like you're enjoying your meal more.

Do say "gochisosama deshita" after you've finished. This means "I thank you for the meal".



Don't blow your nose at the dinner table.

Don't stick your chopsticks straight up into a bowl of rice.

Don't suck on your chopsticks, or lick them.

Don't leave even a grain of rice in your bowl or on your plate.


These are just some general rules. To learn more, check out www.japanesefood101.com
