As a neighbor of China, Japanese dietary culture, especially dietary etiquette, is deeply influenced by China. Japanese dietary etiquette has formed its own style on the basis of learning from Chinese etiquette and combining its own local etiquette. This paper introduces the similarities and differences of the two kinds of dietary etiquette from the aspects of the process before, during and after meals and the use of key Tableware chopsticks. By comparing the differences of dietary etiquette, we can understand and respect each other's dietary culture and etiquette, which is of great benefit to reducing cultural shock, eliminating psychological barriers, and promoting communication and effective transmission of information between communicators.
