  1. Formal chopstick rests are little ceramic objects that you are supposed to rest the ends of your chopsticks on when you put them down. It’s considered much more polite than resting them on your bowl or standing them up in your rice. Many places, however, likely give you waribashi, those wrapped wooden chopsticks that you have to break apart. You can make a little impromptu rest out of the bag.
