B : Please tell us your name.
My name is ...
B : Where do you live?
I live in ... in Nakano Ward, Tokyo.
A : How long have you lived in Nakano?
I've lived in Nakano for about five years.
A : When I first came to Japan 23 years ago, I lived in Ochiai, so I'm familiar
with the area. Now I'd like to ask you three questions, all right? Please relax.
A : Business-related ...
So they learn how to read their names afterwards, secretly. In Japan, a business card is as good as one's face. Japanese society puts importance on people's status. Also, Japanese use honorific expressions, so they use them according to the ranks which are written on the business cards.
A : OK, next question. What do you think about the increasing crimes committed by young people?
A : All right. Relax and go on.
Thank you. Society itself should be blamed. Not only young people, but elderly
and middle-aged people.
And also, because of the recession, man people commit crimes, not only young people.
A : How about communication between children and parents?
Oh, yes. I myself am a parent. Mothers around me seem to pursue their own hobbies.
Because they got used to having a carefree life, communication between parents and children is becoming less and less frequent, just like you said.
