Learn more about Japanese body language and gestures! Yum!

In this video we go over the Japanese gesture for "eating." It basically involves you pretending to hold a bowl of rice and then using two fingers to represent chopsticks. You probably don't have to open your mouth and actually pretend like you're eating, but in this video we do it to try and make you hungry. Doesn't that food look delicious?
