A : Why do you think Japanese people have a long life expectancy?
Well, Japanese people keep early hours and eat healthy food. I think Japanese food has a lot to do with their long life expectancy. Well, for example, ... in Okinawa, certain types of food are believed to have a lot to do with their longevity.
A : I'd like to ask you about "tanabata". What is it?
It's based on a Chinese legend. "Kengyu" and "orihime" can meet once a year on July 7th. The Milky Way divides them.
A : So they live in the sky.
Well ... It's a legend. It's a story. On "tanabata", people write their wishes on a ... strip of paper and tie it to a bamboo tree, hoping that their wishes will come true.
A : I'd like to know about "ekiben". What is it?
It's a lunch box, usually sold at a kiosk or on trains. Department stores serve ... excuse me ... sell it too. It's usually rice with different flavors and it's different from one place to another. It's really good. I hope you'll try it some time ... some day.
A : Did you study abroad?
Yes, I did.

The United States.
