Good Luck with Chopsticks Fortune

Japan takes their chopsticks (お箸 ohashi) seriously. This month we’ve included traditional Japanese chopsticks so you can practice and become an expert in no time! Now it’s time to say goodbye to that fork for good and put those chopsticks to work! Note that these are NOT your ordinary chopsticks. Each pair has a fortune attached to it that will reveal the luck you will have in store for you. What will your fortune tell you?
