A: Good afternoon.
B: Please tell me your name and address.
My name is .... I'm from Kure, Hiroshima Prefecture.
A: Kure! Kure is famous for ...
It's port. The most famous thing about Kure is the Yamato, the battleship which was built during the war.
A: Thank you. I'd like to ask you some questions. These days, there are more and more temporary workers. What do you think about this?
People want to work full-time as proper workers, but private companies don't hire full-time workers because it's cheaper for them to hire temporary workers. From the viewpoint of the employees, it's good to work as full-time workers but because of the bad economy, it's different.
A: Do you think the economy is going to improve?
I don't think it will improve soon.
A: OK, next. Let me talk about clothes, the trend in clothes worn by Japanese. Anti-bacterial clothes are becoming popular. What do you think about this?
I think it may relate to the SARS virus. More and more people are concerned about their health, and they think anti-germ clothes can help protect the body. Yes, people are more and more keen about their health, and they want to protect their bodies by wearing those anti-bacterial clothes.
A: OK. Let me go to the next question. What is "oiro-naoshi"?
"Oiro-naoshi" is to change the dress worn during wedding receptions.
A: Do you think it's good?
I don't know. Just renting a dress costs a lot of money. Couples need to spend a lot of money just for renting a dress. They should spend their money on other things such as their new life.
A: That's very sensible.
A: Please enjoy Hakata.
