    When eating things from a bowl such as rice or soup, it is proper to lift the bowl to

    prevent any food from dropping/dripping.

    Besides the “i-ta-da-ki-ma-su” that you say before a meal that David mentioned, which

    literally means “I’m going to dig in”, you would say “go-chi-so-sa-ma-de-shi-ta”

    afterwards. This thanks those who helped and prepared the food.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks,

    One should wait for the hostess to tell you to eat three times before eating.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_manners#Japanese_table_manners

    It is usually polite to finish all sections of a meal served at around the same time. It is suggested that one should take a bite from one container, and then take a bite of rice. One should then take a bite from another container, have another bite of rice, and so forth.

    1. if you are a visitor to Japan, you must wait to be seated at the dinner table because all must be seated according to their stature, so wait until you are told where to sit (movie in class)

    2. you never pour your own beer, your neighbor will pour it for you and you will return the courtesy. (movie in class

  4. Carly Krasner says:

    1. After eating, try to move all your dishes back to the same position they were at the start of the meal. This includes replacing the lids on dishes and putting your chopsticks on the chopstick holder or back into their paper slip.

    2. When you eat sashimi (raw fish), you can add wasabi (Japanese horseradish) into the soy sauce and mix it to dip sashimi pieces.

    Avoid putting soy sauce on cooked white rice.

    Try not to eat soup all at once. It’s polite to eat rice, soup, and other dishes alternatively.

    table manners:

    1. Most people eat, sitting on the floor or a tatami.

    2. when eating big pieces of food, separate into bite sized pieces with your chopsticks or just bite off a piece and put the rest back onto your plate.

  8. Josh Typrowicz-Cohen says:

    1. Slurping is acceptable

    Movie in class

    2. Burping, however, is considered rude. You have to go to other parts of Asia where this is considered kosher.

  9. Yan Chen says:

    1) Eat sushi in one bite after dipping it in a small plate with soy sauce. Try not to pour more soy sauce than you will need, because wasting soy sauce is looked on as bad manners.

    2) Eatting big pieces of food: (e.g. prawn tempura, tofu)

    Separate into bite sized pieces with your chopsticks (this takes some exercise), or just bite off a piece and put the rest back onto your plate.

  10. Fiona says:

    1) Don’t eat directly from a communal dish. Whatever you take must be set down on your own plate before you put it in your mouth. (If you already read the chopstick page, you know that you should be using the other ends of your chopsticks to take things from a shared plate and you need to reverse your chopsticks before you can eat from them anyway.)

    2) One should not gesture using chopsticks.

  11. Alexandra Raboy says:

    1) It is considered good manners to empty your dish until the last grain of rice

    http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2005.html

    2)Don’t stand chopsticks up in a bowl. Standing chopsticks up in a bowl of rice connotes an offering of food for the dead.
