VIDEO| Polite word to say before eating in Japan

Stripes Okinawa

When you sit down eat in Japan, you'll notice many Japanese putting their hands together and saying one word: Ita-da-ki-masu. It simply a way for the Japanese to say thanks for the food they are about to eat. It's simple to say, so give it a shot. Our wonderful actors in this video will show you exactly how it's done!
