B : May I ask your name and address?
My name is … I live in Nagai in Osaka where the World Cup Soccer 2002 was held.
A : Recently, the number of convenience stores has been increasing. There is one convenience store near here. Do you often go to convenience stores?
I often go there especially the one near my house.
A : Why do you think convenience stores are so popular in Japan?
Because it's very convenient and is opened for 24 hours and we can buy almost anything there.
A : What do ordinary people buy there?
In my case, I often buy ice cream and I think many people often buy daily products and bread.
A : 最近輸血などでエイズに感染した人が非常に増えていることが非常に大きな問題になっている。What do you think?
My grandfather has been suffering from a disease related to blood.（肝炎がうかばなかった）Now he is hospitalized. I think the government should take measures to prevent the increase in diseases.
A : Recently it has been said that the way of treating blood causes the increase of AIDS. What do you think about it?
Yes, it's true. In some countries, the needles which are already used are used again. It's very bad.
A : Are you afraid of getting donated blood? I'm afraid of it very much.
Yes, me too. I'm very afraid of having donated blood.
A : Next question, what happens in the New Year's Day?
（何を言うかかなり迷い「雑煮」しか出てこなかった。今考えるとスープと言っていない。）At first, I cook zoni, containing rice cakes, Japanese radish and carrots. There are mainly two types of zoni, thick one and light one. I cook thick zoni which is made from soy beans, miso which is fermented soybean paste. Then we eat gorgeous dishes called osechi-ryori. There are many vegetables included.
A : （ここで遮られる）Please talk about another thing besides food. Do you do something in the New Year's Day?
Sorry. We go to shrines to prey for my health and families' health.
A : OK. Thank you. That's it.
