How to Eat Washoku
When eating washoku, avoid continuing to eat only rice, or only side dishes, but eat rice, soup, rice, and then a side dish.

The Order of Eating Washoku
How one eats washoku has a certain sequence. First, take the chopstick in the right, take the rice bowl in the left hand, eat two bites of rice, and return it to the tray. Next, while holding the chopsticks in the right hand, take the soup bowl, and drink some brothe. Eat some ingredients of the soup, then after drinking some brothe again, return it to the tray. After eating rice again, eat the side dish to the far side of the rice. In the same manner, after eating rice, soup, and more rice, eat the dish to the far side of the soup.
To eat something along with a sauce such as sashimi, hold the sauce dish in the left hand, and eat holding it over your knees. If there is a dish with a variety of vegetables and fish, after eating rice, first the vegetables are eaten, and then the fish is eaten. This is out of a concern to avoid a lingering scent of the previous dish. Avoid eating side dishes without eating rice, also eating side dishes straight from the soup, and continuously eating the same side dish. Rather, eat rice, soup, rice, and then a side dish.

Having Seconds During Washoku
Other than at the end of the meal, make sure not eat rice after pouring hot water or tea over it. Also, make sure not to eat by scooping up rice that hasn’t hot water or tea poured over it. Of course, eat everything to the last bite. In washoku, pick up the dishes of soup or things that drip broth, and eat. If there is no such saucer, the lid of the rice bowl or such can be substituted.
When having seconds of rice, definatly set down your chopsticks. When asking for seconds of rice, leave a little rice left over. At then end, eat so not even one grain is left over. Those carrying the meal should be careful to serve the meal on top a tray and not to stick out the hands. Make sure the rice is filled to about 80 percent and not to have a mountianous serving of the side dishes. Otherwise, be careful to avoid unsightly conduct and carelessness and endevour to avoid the discomfort of the other guests.
