|TABLE MANNER AT HOME
- HOW TO USE CHOPSTICKS SKILFULLY -
SUPERVISED BY MICHIKO UEDA, TEACHER OF HYOGO PREFECTURAL ITAMI HIGH SCHOOL
Ｗhen we think about table manners, home is an important place for childhood to learn
daily table manners.
But today, Western-style dishes are increasing and nuclear families are becoming popular
Because of steady increasing in the number of families who eat their meals separately,
the occasions where the parents teach their children the traditional table manners (the
basis is how to use chopsticks) are decreasing.
Ｔhis is one of the reason why Japanese food isn't popular to Japanese children very much.
We made this video to let the children learn how to use chopsticks correctly as one of
the basis among the traditional Japanese table manners.
And we supply this video to many Video-Library at all parts of Japan.
Ｓince this original video in Japanese was produced, the Ministry Of Education appointed
this video for excellence in 1995.
And also has been designated for use in High School programs and extra-curricular
educational programs for teenagers and adults.
In recent years, Japanese food is appreciated as a healthy food, and has been spread
fairly widely in the world.
For those people who visiting Japan, to know about culture of eating is the best way to
learn about Japanese culture.
But there are few videos explaining about chopsticks using.
Because of their less skill of chopsticks, many people can't notice the marvelousness of
traditional Japanese food.
Ｗe hope this video will be helpful for international interchange.
