A: Please put your bag on the chair.
A: Please be seated.
B: First of all, please tell me your name and where do you live?
My name is XXX, and I live in .....
A: Oh, we have lots of visitors from ........ today, maybe five
or six in a row.
Because there's no examination in ......... I wish there were.
A: Sorry. We'd like to go to ....... too.
OK, suppose I'm a tourist, traveling in Japan, and there's an earthquake.
What should I do?
Oh, earthquake! (困った。充分予想していていい問題だった。でも、予想問題の中にこんなのあったけ？）If you
are inside a building and you find a desk, go under the desk. If
you are outside, go away from the building. (その後どうしたらいいのかわからない！）Move
away from the building, and ask your tour guide.(しまった、私がtour guideじゃないか！）
A: I hope your tour guide is OK too. Next question. When I travel
in Japan, I visit many temples and there are so many statues in
the temples. What are they?
Basically they are images of Buddha. But they are different. Some
are ranked higher and some are ranked lower. There are bosatsu,
nyorai and so on and their ranks are different.
A: How can I tell which is which?
We can tell by---how they sit, or by their shape of their hands,
or by their hair style. But I don't know in detail. I'll study about
A: OK. The last question. I hear about geisha and maiko. How are
Usually maikosan is young, and geisha is older. They entertain guests
when they dine.
A: Are they trained?
Yes, I think they are trained.
A: Where can I see them? Are they very expensive?
If you join a tour only for the night, they will take you at such
a place and it will not be very expensive.
A: Are there geisha in ........ too?
I've never been to such a place, but I think there are in .........
A: Maybe there are. They must entertain Toyota people.
Yes, that's for sure.
A: All right, thank you.
