Descriptions of Japanese food and dining etiquette

寿司 Sushi

寿司 Sushi

By hand or with chopsticks?

Although Sushi is traditionally eaten by hand, you can eat it with chopsticks. Unless sushi is seasoned with sauce or salt, it is eaten with soy sauce. Put soy sauce in a small plate, and dip “neta” (the top part) into soy sauce. Janomezushi, a historical shop in Kakinokibatake offers sushi with fresh fish, Kaga vegetables and rice cooked in quality water.

中華料理 Chinese food

中華料理 Chinese food

Enjoy group dining.

Chinese style: each entre is served on a large plate so that each entre is available to all. Each diner takes individual portions onto small plates, but guests of honor are served first. Generally separate small plates are used for each dish. We have many Chinese restaurants that use a variety of local ingredients.

Spoon or Chopsticks?

Korean food is eaten with chopsticks and a spoon. Rice is eaten with a spoon and the other dishes are eaten with chopsticks. Do not lift bowls when you eat (as they do in Japan) so that you won’t get burned from hot plates. Bibimba, Kuppa, Samgyeopsal and Chijimiare are typical Korean cuisine, and most Korean food is spicy.

そば Soba

Kakesoba or Morisoba ?

There are two types of soba. Kakesoba is buckwheat noodles served in soup. Morisoba is also made with buckwheat noodles but served on a dish with a dipping sauce and sometimes with sobayu (the water that the noodles have been cooked in). After eating the noodles, you can pour the sobayu into the remaining sauce and drink it (if you want to - it is NOT considered bad manners if you don’t.) The soba restaurant Sarashina Fujii offers hand made soba using highly purified buckwheat.
