(何を言っていいのか分からなくなる。Aとのアイコンタクトをやめ、Aの上方を仰いでやや沈黙)

TV rating people

think of other private TV companies' programs as interesting. So they don't pay subscription fee to NHK.

A: The last question. What is Kanzashi?

Kanzashi is kind of broach which women, especially maiko, use to keep their hair neat and to decorate hair.

Thank you.

Thank you. Bye.
