B: Please have a seat.
B: May we ask you your name and where you live?
My name is ..... I'm from ...... I live in ... Village at the foot of Mr. Fuji in Yamanashi Prefecture.
B: Oh, so how long did it take you to come here?
About one and a half hours by bus.
B: So you came by bus, not by train. The bus is faster?
Yes and cheaper.iFÎÁ½j
B: So in your hometown what else is there to see apart from Mt. Fuji?
My hometown is part of Fuji Hakone Izu National Park. There are five Fuji Lakes...Fuji Five Lakes near my hometown, and also there is an old shrine called Sengen Shrine. When I went to New Zealand I saw a brochure about Japan. It had a picture of my hometown. I was very impressed and happy.
A: Ok, let me ask you some questions. First, why do you think Japanese people live so long?
I think the main reason is the food which we eat. Japanese food is said to be very nutritious. Also, Japanese people exercise a lot. They are very conscious about their health. For example, my family go to hospital straight away when they don't feel well. They don't wait. And, also we eat lots of vegetables.
A: What do you do to be healthy yourself?
I walk about one and a half hours every day while listening to music. I cook vegetables and prepare lots of vegetables for me and my husband.
A: Ok, then next question. What do you think of children having cellular phones?
I think it's good and bad. Japan is getting more and more dangerous. So it's necessary for children to have cellular phones to contact their parents. But I think the bad thing about cellular phones is children use cellular phones too much. They should speak face to face. It costs a lot for parents. The important thing is that the parents give good instructions on how to use the phones to the children.
A: Ok, recently lots of children are very fat. What do you think?
I think this is because of the decline in the birth rate. People have less and less children and they spoil their children a lot. They give whatever children want. They don't tell them to eat food which is good for health and whenever they ask for it, not at regular meal times.
A: Ok, thank you very much for coming today.
Thank you very much.
A: Enjoy your trip back.
