Default Chinese/Japanese way of eating soup?

Hi, I have a friend who says that in China/Japan the appropriate way to
eat/drink soup (eg, miso soup) is to take the bowl in one hand, tip it and
drink from it while simultaneously using the chopsticks in your right hand
to sort of.. shovel.. the chunkier bits into your mouth.

He says the big spoons that are used in Western Asian restaurants are not
used in the East.

Can anybody corroborate this?
