Izumo myth and bamboo chopstick
-Where is Chopstick from ?-

Once upon a time, there was God whose name is Susanaonomikoto.
He was sent away from Gods because he was very wild and naughty.
When he just came down to Hino-river in Izumo, one chopstick is coming over up from a river.
It looked like a pair of tweezers which is bent. It was used when people offer some food for Gods or to eat them with Gods.

This is the biginning of myth that Susanaonomikoto was going to fight against 'Yamatanoorochi' who has eight heads.
The first chopstick that Japanese used was like a pair of tweezers made of bamboo.
