like a ballet dancer dancing...


This is a shop selling chopsticks, hashi. Many chopsticks are exhibited and most of them are coated with Japanese lacquer, urushi.

Japanese chopsticks are made of wood; Korean are stainless or steel and Chinese are wood or bamboo or ivory(or something like ivory).

Some American said before, looking at Japanese using chopsticks at a restaurant,
"they use chopsticks as if a ballet dancer dances above a dish."

Hi,
I posted enquiry to the forum, so hopefully Igor will pick it up.

Your 1/December post and others are stored on different server at blogger side. Most of our current post is drafted while we are at blogger (non-beta). Now I'm wandering if this photo server is affect the thumbnail creation. Your feed looks Ok to me. At lease, I can read with my firefox.

I love this shot - it is definitely a glimpse into life that is different than my own. I'm afraid I would go hungry if left to using chopsticks. ;)

"Those chopsticks are really cool. I've been wanting to live in Japan, or at least visit. There are so many chopsticks, I can't count! :)" - my 7 year old daughter (almost 8) wanted to write this when I showed her your blog. Happy New Year!
