日本の食べ物 Nihon no tabemono Japanese food
Japanese table manners Before the meal, you would say いただきます (itadakimasu), which means ‘I gratefully receive’. Proper use of chopsticks is very important It is customary to serve each other with drinks, instead of serving yourself. ‘Cheers’= かんぱい kanpai Every meal is served with rice in a small bowl. It is normal for there to be several dishes on the table, and you take bits from each bowl. ‘Slurping’ is perfectly acceptable! At the end of the meal, you would say ごちそうさまでした (gochisosamadeshita), which means ‘thank you for the meal’.
