The Most Standard Japanese Table Setting
Ichiju-Sansai" is the basis of Japanese cuisine.
It is a set menu that combines "rice," the staple food of the Japanese, with "soup", "main dish" and two side dishes.
It is a well-balanced meal that provides the body with the three nutrients it needs: energy, body-building, and body-conditioning.
Provide carbohydrates as a source of energy. The Rice Bowl is placed closest to the person, on the left.
It provides water along with miso, which is highly effective in maintaining health. The Soup Bowl is placed closest to the person, on the right.
Main Dish and Two Side Dishes
The main dish provides protein, and the side dishes provide vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
As for placement, the main and side dishes placed furthest from the person. The most standard arrangement is to place the side dishes on the left and in the center and the main dish on the right, but it doesn't have to be that strict.
The main dish can be placed in the main plates or serving bowls. Side dishes can be placed in small kobachi bowls, side plates, or sauce plates.
Chopsticks and Tray
Place the chopsticks in front of you with the handle facing your dominant hand.
The tips of the chopsticks should be placed on the chopstick rest.
The tray & placemat is not necessary, but a tray makes things look better and makes serving and cleaning up easier.
