Just for Fun – Japanese Comedy YouTube Video about How to Use Chopsticks

April 7, 2008

I came across this video while looking for some historical Japanese news footage for personal study. This is apparently a series. I’d be happy to embed some more of them if people are interested in seeing them. This video starts out with very subtle comedy. It’s a lot of fun, but I don’t know if the video is going to help you actually learn to eat well with chopsticks. I will definitely try out some of the techniques for separating waribashi (or the wooden chopsticks ubiquitous in restaurants here) just to make the next enkai (office party) interesting.
