My step-mother, a proud Japanese woman, didn't care for us learning much of anything about her native country or culture (that's what we got for being white--gaijin in our own home!), but she made SURE that we learned TWO THINGS:

First, never stick your chopsticks upright in your food!
Second, never pour soy sauce on your rice!

This was enforced in ways only used by Asian mothers... I can still feel The Stare.

Now, I watch my youngest sister and my cousins, all of whom are half-Japanese, grow up and they all pour soy sauce on their rice. Kids these days have no discipline!
