B: Please be seated.
B: Could you tell me your name and address?
My name is.... and I live in this city.
A: Oh,do you live in this city? How long did it take you to come here
from door to door?
It's about 20 minuites. Hakozaki, where I live, is 2 train stations from
A: (to B and C) Do you know Hakozaki?・・・・・・ Well, I heard many Japanese
like to eat fast food. Why do you think they like fast food?
There are several reasons for this, but the most important reason, I think,
is they are always stressed. I mean most Japanese are hard-working and
they have little time to eat.
A: So, you mean most Japanese are stressed and have to do other things,
Yes, After that, they have to go back to their work.（ここで若者のことについても触れておけばよかった）
A: You're right, they are hard-working people. Well, so, what kind of
fast food do you recommend foreign people?
I would recommend a Tachigui-soba, stall・・・・・・（ここでやや詰まる.３００選の説明を続ければよかった）.
A: Oh! I heard many Japanese like Tachigui-soba. Do you think it's healthy?
Many kinds of seafood, vegetables or Tempra ・・・（やや聞き取れず）？
I don't think it's very healthy, but it's a typical Japanese fast food.
A: Yes, you can get power from "Stamina Soba," right?
Yes. Many kinds of ingredients are in it.
A: Well, I heard beef consumption is going down. Do you know that?
Yes. Actually, I went to Yoshinoya, a famous Gyu-don restaurant chain,
this morning（ここで牛丼の説明をしておけばよかったか？）, and had a "Natto Special."
A: Really? What's a coincidence! So, are there any beef menus still now?
Yes. They still have some beef menus. But I don't think it's from the
United States. I think it's from Australia, or other countries.
A: But you didn't choose from a beef menu, right?
No. Because I like Natto Special, which consists of a bowl of rice, natto,
and Miso soup.
A: That's simply because you like it.
A: So, do you think beef consumption is still going down?
Yes. Definitely, beef consumption has been going down since the BSE problem.
But I don't think it will last very long・・・・・・
A: By the way, people say the eating habits of Japanese young peaple are
changing. Do you think it's true?
Yes. For example, my parents,---they are in their 60's and 70's--, eat
three times a day, whereas many young people have twice, or even only
once a day. I think this is the biggest difference between older generations
and younger generations.
A: What do you mean by "younger generations"?
Oh, I mean people under my age. （苦笑い）
A: Well. What do you eat for lunch?
Well, I have no idea. But,・・・・・・, after this interview, I will have something
very Japanese and healthy at a University restaurant.
A: We hope you will have a good lunch. Please enjoy. Thank you.
Thank you so much. Have a good day!
