B : Your name please.
My name is ....
B : Where are you from?
I'm from Osaka. I live in Takatsuki City.
A : Do you think walking is trendy? Yes, it's trendy. I like walking myself. It's good for health.
A : What is hanami?
It's cherry blossom viewing. Under the trees, people sit and enjoy looking at cherry blossoms and eating. There are people who enjoy singing, too.
A : Do you think the number of crimes in Japan has increased?
Yes, I think so.
Well, there are many foreign people who commit crimes. Ah, not many foreign people but some of them commit crimes. And there are also Japanese who commit crimes.
A : Can you give us some examples?
About a month ago, a 12 year-old boy killed a 4 year-old boy. The 12 year-old boy took the infant to the top of a building, I mean the roof, and pushed him off.
A : Was it really a 12 year-old boy?
Yes, that's what I heard.
B : Could you explain "igo"?
Well, I'm not an "igo" player myself, so I can't explain in detail. It's a chess-like game. Two people play. They put black and white stone pieces and move them on the board.
B : How about "shogi"?
"Shogi" is also played by two people. The winner is the one who gets more pieces.
A : Why don't Japanese husbands praise their wives?
Japanese people think they should be modest and humble. So they don't praise themselves or their family members.
