Although chopsticks are a product of Chinese culture, almost all Asian countries have a variation of chopsticks. Different from the long, round-tipped chopsticks of China or the flat, metal chopsticks of Korea, Japanese chopsticks are tapered and pointy. Moreover, Japan does not have a culture of commensality, and people generally do not share their meals. Therefore, Japanese chopsticks are shorter than those of other Asian countries. Chopsticks in Japanese is pronounced "hashi," which is also a homophone for "bridge." Therefore, chopsticks are often gifted as a symbol of happiness, health, and longevity, particularly for newlyweds.
