    A Small Piece Of Advice

    It is rude! What are the rules of eating around?

    Have you ever heard “eating around”? Recently, eating while you walk is called “eating around”, but the original meaning was “eating around in various places”. This comic is about “eating around”.

     

    In Japan, people are taught that walking while eating is not good. There has been thinking in Japan that eating in a public place is not beautiful and unbecoming for a long time. Especially elder people are still thinking very strict about this kind of behavior. Some foreign tourists might feel that there is no problem with walking while eating, but some people feel uncomfortable, so please to be kind to others.

     

    When walking while eating in a crowded place like Komemaru, there is a risk of bumping into other people and make their clothes dirty, or injury them with a skewer of yakitori. Also, you might fall down and get injury. In such cases, it is better to eat in front of the store where you bought or take it home to eat. Some tourist places prohibit eating around, you need to check the local rules and etiquette beforehand.

     

    As the saying “Juunen hitomukashi”, it has become common to see people eating rice balls or bread bought at convenience stores, while walking. In the past, parents used to say that “it is not good” when children did eating around, but society has changed so much in ten years. It is understandable that you want to eat around, but it is not good manners. Please be careful!
