B： Please have a seat.
B： Please tell us your name.
Yes. My name is … .
A： Where are you from?
I’m from Kurashiki city, next to Okayama city.
A： Oh really? Then if I were a tourist, where would you take me?
I’d take you to Bihan Area, which is famous for warehouse. We have Tivoli Park imitating Tivoli Park in Denmark.
A： Oh, really? I’ve heard there’s a very famous museum. Do you know?
Yes, we have Ohara museum.
A： What is it famous for?
Because there are many famous paintings. For example there is a famous painting of annunciation by El Greco.
A： Now a different question. What do you think of import embargo on US beef?
I know Japan has decided to lift import ban on US beef. This means US beef will arrive on the market from December. I’ve heard that the safety of US has not been proven yet. Government should give enough and appropriate explanation. I hope that government will be more careful about things concerning our health.
A： Another question. What is the difference between marriage of the present and the past?
Well, I think an increasing number of people are getting married in Christian style nowadays. In the past people used to get married by omiai or an arranged meeting with a prospective marriage partner. But nowadays people get married by love marriage like Western people.（何を言おうかあわてて考えた。そしてなぜかいきさつは覚えていないが）I got married by omiai（などとprivateな事を言ってしまった）
A： Do you think it is a good trend?
Yes. I think so.
A：（嬉しそうに笑った） But you are now happy by omiai marriage?
I’m not sure.
A：（突然話題が変り）What is futon?

A： Thank you very much. I enjoyed talking to you.
Thank you very much.（座ったまま一礼、立って一礼、退室時一礼）
