May I sit down?
A : Yes. Is it raining outside?
Yes, a little bit.
A : How long did it take you to come here?
It took about two and half hours.

Yes. My name is … I live in Sanda City.
A : Sanda? Where is it?
Sanda City is located in southeastern part of Hyogo Prefecture. It is well-known
for rice and beef.
A : What do you think about "relaxed education"?
I think it's a difficult problem. Thanks to the relaxed education, children in elementary, junior high school and high school have a lot of free time to do various things. And it is useful to create imagination. However, a friend of mine who is a teacher said, "we don't have enough time to complete the curriculum." So children have to go to school during the summer vacation. Some students have to go to a cram school to prepare for an entrance examination of a high school and university. That's why I think it's controversial.
A : Next question. What is "Ohigan"?
A : Do you go to ancestors' graves?
Some of my relatives go to ancestors' graves to worship. However, my husband and I are Christians. So we don't have to go to ancestors' graves. Instead we go to church every week, every Sunday.
A, B : Good. That's it.
