Hashi (Chopsticks): Nakabushi, Green Painted Bamboo
There are 4 styles of chopsticks used during Kai-seki: Nakabushi, Motobushi, Ryoboso, and Sugibashi. Each style is distinguished according to the course and the type of dishes served.
Nakabushi is used for grilled fish and hassun, which is equivalent to small shared plates much like tapas. The bamboo node is a few inches from the wide end.
