A: Good afternoon.（笑顔）
C: Please put your bag on the chair.（笑顔）
Thank you very much
A: Where are you from today?
I’m from Suita city, Osaka.
A: Oh, are you from Osaka?
Do you know them?
I don’t know.
A: I’m going to give you several questions about Japan and Japanese people. So, please answer them.
A: In Japan people take off their shoes at the entrance of a house. Sometimes people take off shoes in other places. Do you think this custom is changing? What do you think about it?
I think it depends on the situation and place. By taking off shoes, we can keep the place clean. We consider the places we go into wearing shoes to be outside. Therefore, if we have the concept that the place is inside, we take off shoes.
Yes, by wearing slippers, we can keep the place clean.
In my case, we don’t use slippers at home. I think taking off shoes is enough.
A: Yes. OK. （笑顔）
Oh, yes. It is called Meoto chawan
The big one is for a husband and the small one is for a wife.
A: I’ve heard some wives use the bigger one.
That’s right. I sometimes use the bigger one.
A: Ok. Another question. These days, children have used cell phones. What do you think about it?
I advocate this tendency, but with several conditions. Cell phones are closely related to the Internet and computers.
A: OK. So, if you have a child ….
Actually I have two children.
A: Oh, do they use a cell phone?
Not now. But I will give them in the future.
A: Then, what kind of rule will you make?
I will supervise their use of the cell phone. I will make them use it in front of me because there are a lot of harmful sites. Of course, calling someone is OK. But when they use the Internet or e-mail, I will make them follow the rule.
A: Oh. Yes. That’s a good rule.
