B: Have a seat
A: Hello. Please relax. We are going to ask your name.
B: Thank you, XXX-san, where did you come from today?
B: By bullet train? How long did you take?
Yes, by bullet train. It took 2 hours and 20 minutes.
A: Can you tell me if there is a big earthquake, what shall we do?
In case of the earthquake?
It depends on where you are. In case of small houses we are told to be under the desk or hard furniture. The most important thing is to calm down, and escape.
A & B: （Laugh）
B: Should I prepare for the earthquake?
Earthquake? Well, I built new house four years ago we followed many restrictions and regulations, we followed the highest regulations.
B: Oh! Ok. I am interested in Japanese history. Could you tell me about the Buddhist statues? What are main types?
The famous ones are the statues, large statues of Buddha. The most famous ones are seen in Nara and Kamakura.
Later on since the 10th century many Kannon, Bodhisattva, became popular, they are from China and Korea, also if you travel local area in Japan you see many jizo, which are small statues and they are regarded as a god (?) of children and travellers. They are very popular.
B: Jizo what do we do something? （その地蔵に何か特別なことをしますか？などの意味だったと思います。）
I think it depends on your religion. Rice and flowers are made to him, I see.
B: I am interested in current culture. And in Tokyo there is a place called Akihabara. Can you tell me some interesting shops or places in this area?
Well, Akihabara is a kind of Mecca for young people called "Otaku" who are generally young people and who are interested in computers and prefer staying in a room.
Those people are interested in animation. Animation are broadcasted worldwide, some of them are created in Japan.
They are duplicating themselves on animations or character or figures of animation, I think. Because people get together in Akihabara.
B: If I visit there do you recommend any attractions for my enjoyment?
Enjoyment? At my generation... if I were young I would have visited cafeteria where young ladies serve tea or coffee, calling goshujinsama, my master, which I haven't been called even from my wife.
B: Is it easy to get a bargain there for the electrics?
Electric appliance? Yes I think so. It's a kind of complex of electric shops. I hear many Taiwanese drop by Akibahara and buy electrics for souvenirs.
B: Ok thank you very much for coming today.
A: This is the end of question, now you are free.
Thank you very much. Have a good day.
