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.

(最初思い出せず、stripe… と言ってから思い出した)

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.

(つい前問を引きずってしまった)

A: "Shoes."

(と付け足された)

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.
