Japanese Chopsticks are More Unique

In the world of chopsticks, patrons typically see Chinese chopsticks at restaurants. The main differences between Chinese chopsticks and Japanese chopsticks are the length, design and the ends. Chinese chopsticks typically are longer, thicker, and have flat ends. On the other hand, Japanese chopsticks tend to feature other polygonal design elements, floral aesthetics, and often have pointed ends. 

Since most chopsticks are Chinese, it’s more unique when you see a pair of Japanese chopsticks.
