~ History of Japanese Chopsticks Culture ~

It is estimated that the Japanese started using chopsticks sometime between the Yayoi period and the Asuka period (3rd to 7th century). In the 7th century, envoys to China were entertained with a meal using chopsticks. Therefore, when the envoys came to Japan, they followed China and ate with chopsticks, which is thought to have been the beginning of the spread of chopsticks. Eventually, chopsticks gradually spread among the common people and evolved in their unique way in Japan.
