B： May I ask your name?
My name is ○○○○.
B： Where are you from?
I am from ○○○○.
A： What would you recommend as a souvenir in ○○○○?
I recommend "Nada's Sake," and a pretty small bottle of it is very good, because there are lots of Sake breweries in the city.
A： What do you think of the banning of import of U.S. beef?
I don't agree. Our scientific research and checking systems are very severe. Although some consumers are against the import, I think the ban should be lifted, then lots of businesses can enjoy activities.
A： What is "geta"?
"Geta" are Japanese wooden clogs. They have v-shaped … thongs.
A： Yes. Thongs.
We wear them in summer mainly on festival occasions when you are in "yukata."

A： Why do Japanese take off their shoes at the entrance?
It's customary. I've never thought of the reason. Anyway we take off "clogs" when we enter the living quarter.
Oh yes, I meant shoes. Some elderly people take off their shoes even on the train or aircraft, because they may feel comfortable as if they were at home.
A： It is only a Japanese custom?
As far as I know yes … Oh no, in Korea they do, but not in China or Taiwan.
