Some Japanese trivia 1

In Japan, chopsticks were introduced from China in the Nara period (710-784) and were first used by the nobility. They were also used in many other East Asian countries, but
Japan is the only country where people traditionally used only chopsticks instead of chopsticks and spoons, and there are many taboos when it comes to using chopsticks. In Japan, most chopsticks are made of wood, bamboo, or plastic, but in restaurants, people often use disposable chopsticks. Estimates suggest that about a third of the world’s population uses chopsticks when eating. With a skilled hand, these two straight chopsticks can perform many cooking and eating tasks, such as scooping, grabbing, breaking, wrapping, picking, picking, and mixing. Around Asia, chopsticks are made from a variety of materials such as wood, metal and plastic, and each country has different tastes and traditions. In Japan, hashi, or more politely ochashi, are generally made from wood or bamboo and then treated with a lacquer coating or resin.
