A: Good afternoon. Please leave all your belongings on the desk next to you.

Thank you. Can I sit here?

A: Please.

B: Please tell me your name and address.

My name is ›››› and I live in Takarazuka city, Hyogo Prefecture.

A: Oh, you came from Takarazuka. You know the Takarazuka Revue, but do you know why Revue is played only by women?

Oh, it's a very good question and also difficult to answer, but I think the reason is that the revue keeps traditional factors like Kabuki, which is performed only by males.

A: I see. By the way, what kinds of programs are popular? Japanese dramas?

No, they mainly play Western history or culture, and from January next year they play " La Rose de Versaille."

A: I see. From now on I will ask you questions from the viewpoint of foreigners or strangers from overseas. What do you think about Princess Masako?

I feel very sorry for her of her stress about her child. I think we'd better change the Imperial Household Law as soon as possible.

A: I see. What do you think about the pension system?

I am 64 years old and a recipient of the pension now. I think people of my age can live with the present pension money but we are facing a very quick decline in the birth rate, and sooner or later, this pension system cannot be sustained. It is necessary to change the system as soon as possible. But this kind of problem is not only for Japan, but I am sure your country has the same problem.

A: Yes that's right. By the way, please explain to me "Seijin-no-hi."

"Seijin-no-hi" is the day for those who have reached the legal age of twenty. We call this day, 2nd Monday of January, Coming of Age Day.

A: OK. Thank you very much.

Thank you very much, and good-by. Oh, I feel so nervous!
