A : Ok. Let me ask you a question. For a foreign tourist, what place would you take in Kyoto or in Osaka?

I would take you to Kinkakuji Temple in the north of Kyoto. The temple was refurbished, meaning gold sheets were replaced a few years ago, so it must be very beautiful now.

A : What do you think of the Hanshin Tigers? Were you excited?

Yes, I was excited. Though I'm not a big fan of professional baseball, I was exited this year. As I am kind of a native person of this area, I was excited this year.

A : You grew up in Kyoto, and you now work in Osaka. What's the difference between Kyoto and Osaka?

Well, Kyoto is more sophisticated and influenced by bushi. Osaka is the second largest city and more commercialized. Kyoto is a more cultural city, and Osaka is a business city.
