B: Good Afternoon.
Good Afternoon. Yoroshiku Onegai Shimasu.
B: Please tell us your name.
My name is ********.
B: Where did you come from today?
I came from Tsu City in Mie prefecture. It takes about two hours to here
by train, Kintetsu line.
A: Oh, I heard Tsu City is a very beautiful city. Is it so? I have never
been there, though.
Oh, Yes. And Iga City is also very beautiful.
A: Oh, is the city far from Tsu City?
It takes about one hour by Kintetsu line from Tsu City.
A: Ok. Now, I will ask you a few questions.
A: Now, there are many discount restaurants in Japan. Do you think it
because of economy condition of Japan?
Yes. I think so. Because the economy in Japan is not so good, people do
not want to spend a lot of money to have dinner outside.
A: If Japanese economy is growing up, do you think people will not go
restaurants any more?
Well, I think people will go to discount restaurants even if the economy
is growing up.
A: OK. Next question. What is Golden Week?
Golden week is a long vacation starting from the end of April to the
beginning of May.(かなり絶望的・・・・)
During the time, there are some national holidays. And most companies
regards days between such national holidays as holidays.
So, most people can take about 7 days or 10 days holidays. I think it
not so long vacation.
A: (笑いながら) Oh, I think it is long vacation. Do you avoid traveling
during Golden Week?
Yes, because during Golden Week, most scenic locations are really
crowded, and the price of accommodations and transportation are higher.
So, I try to avoid traveling during Golden Week. But, I cannot take long
vacation except Golden Week, so.....
A: (とてもうれしそうな笑顔で) Oh, yes, right. Then, what is Sento?
Sento is a public bath house. Sento used to be popular and there were
Sento. But now, they are decreasing because each family has their own
at their house.
However, Sento is still popular, especially among senior people. They
together there, talk with each other and have a good time there.
A: Ok. Thank you. That's all.
Thank you. Arigatou Gozaimashita.
