A, B： Good afternoon.
B： Please have a seat.
B： What is your name? And where do you live?
My name is ○○○○. I live in ○○○○.
B： Do you work?
No, I don’t. I’m a housewife.
A： Do you want to be a tour guide?
Yes, I would love to.
A： I’m going to ask you a few questions.
A： Pretend that I’m a tourist. Do you live in a city or countryside? I visited Kanazawa, I passed by Fukui. I saw beautiful countryside.
I live in … a city. Central part of the city.
A： If I visit Fukui. where would you like to take me?
Well, it depends on the weather. But if it’s fine like today, I would like to take you to Tojinbo.
It’s a very steep cliff washed by the seas. So it’s very steep. The scenery of the sea is also beautiful and the cliff itself is very beautiful.
A： OK. When you socialize, do you want to do as a family or as an individual? Generally at your age.
I want to socialize as a family, but since my husband is very busy, I want him to take a rest on holidays when my friends ask us to go out as a family.
A： Why are husbands so busy in Japan?
In my case, my husband is a medical doctor. The number of the patients is quite large. Every day he has to see 100 patients.
The number of the doctors is quite limited. There are only 3 doctors including my husband, so he is so busy. Besides, there are hospitalized patients and he has to do operations. So he comes home at 10, 11 even at 2 or 3 in the morning.
A： So your husband must be exhausted.
Yes, so I tend to socialize individually.
A： What’s Roten ?buro?
A： What’s Roten-buro?
Ah, Roten-buro is generally a very big bath which is located outside. It’s facility…
（あまり覚えていないが、Japanese inn とかにあるということを言った）
It’s a mixed bath.
Both women and men can take a bath together. Last month I have experienced Roten-buro for the first time when I went to a Japanese style inn.
A： Oh, how was it?
It was a little embarrassing, but women are allowed to wrap a big towel.
So, it was quite an interesting experience. When women go into the bath, most of the men seem to be …
And they start to stop bathing.
A： It was very nice talking with you. Thank you.
It was nice talking to you. Thank you very much. Please have a good day.
