B:Please be seated.
A:I will ask you some questions.
A:Why are there so many hot springs in Japan?
It is because there are many volcanoes in Japan. The number of the hot springs has something to do with the number of volcanoes, and Japan has a lot of volcanoes so,there are a lot of hot springs.
A:Is there any hot springs around here?
Yes,I recommend you to visit Arima-Onsen in Hyogo prefecture. It is one of the oldest hot springs in Japan.
A:Oh,really. Can I get there by train?
Yes,you can. And from Osaka you can get there by bus. There are many accommodations in Arima-Onsen.
A:How often do you take a bath?
I usually take a bath everyday.
A:Everyday? We don't take a bath everyday. Why do you take a bath everyday?
It is because Japanese people like to take a bath very much. It is good to relax in cold winter and hot summer.
A:Isn't it a purpose to get clean? (体を洗うジェスチャーを して）
Yes, of course it is one of the purposes.(回答を誘導してくれたのか？ バスタブの外で洗うことを言うべきだった。)
On holidays, I sometimes take a bath twice.(と言ったら 女性Ｂがあっはっはと大笑い、Ａもつられて笑っていた。)
A:Oh,I don't take twice today. (Aもリラックスしたいと思うほど緊張しているのだと言いたかったのかも) Besides Samurai in Edo period, what kind of people are there?
There are farmers, merchants, and people engaged in industries.
A:Are samurai rich?
No, actually they are not so rich. Some merchants are richer.
A:OK Thank you very much.
