Chopsticks in Japanese is pronounced "hashi," which is also a synonym for "bridge." Therefore, chopsticks are often gifted as a symbol of happiness, health, and longevity, particularly for newlyweds. Moreover, chopsticks are used in pairs, which symbolizes a strong relationship. In Japan, chopsticks are often given as wedding gifts or during important anniversaries, such as golden and silver weddings. Furthermore, because Japan is one of the few Asian countries without a culture of commensality, people typically use shorter chopsticks than those in Taiwan or South Korea, and the tips of the chopsticks are usually tapered. It's interesting how chopsticks have evolved with the development of different Asian countries.
