A bowl of rice with a pair of chopsticks

One of the good examples is an image seen here. An image similar to this was used once as an advertisement in one of the world-known restaurants. The image itself looks “a bowl of rice with a pair of standing chopsticks" and may stimulate your appetite. However, in Japanese cultures, when someone dies, a bowl of rice with a pair of standing chopsticks is laid beside a pillow of dead immediately after death. This manner is known as “Makura meshi” or “Hotoke bashi”. It is disguised in Japanese manners and is believed to trigger bad lucks.

As seen in this example, images and Japanese Kanji or language may not be suitable in use due to some of Japanese cultures, manners and superstitions. In order to avoid complaints or mistakes, it is better to know and respect Japanese culture and tradition. Name Japanese is here to prevent such problems.
