Good Morning!

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 here.

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?
(見た目は東洋人だが言葉はアメリカ系英語。ニコニコしていた。)

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, right?

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.
(どう答えてよいか分からなかったが、反射的に答えた)

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.
(正確性に自信はないが、どこかで聞いたような覚えがあったのでこう答えた)

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.

Yes.(助け舟を出してくれたと思う)

A: So, do you think beef consumption is still going down?

(また元の質問に戻ったと思いつつ・・・)
Yes. Definitely, beef consumption has been going down since the BSE problem. But I don't think it will last very long・・・・・・
(ここでアメリカの圧力があるから、と続けたかったが次の質問が来た)

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?

(予想していなかった質問なので)
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.

(これで終了だなと思いつつ)
Thank you so much. Have a good day!
