Good afternoon. May I put my bag here?
A: Yes. Please have a seat.
B: May I ask your name?
My name is ….
B: Where do you live?
I live in ….. near …. Station of …. Line.
A: In Japan, massages or Aroma therapy are very popular. Why are these popular?
I can think of several reasons. First, Japanese people are very tired from their overwork, so people are very tired from their overwork, so people want to heal themselves. So they go to undergo some massage or aroma therapy as a healing effect. Another reason is that Japanese peole especially young women are curious about something new, so they go to take aroma therapy. （something new と アロマの関連付けができずにここで終わらせてしまった）
A: What aroma therapy is like?
Aroma therapy is a massage using aroma oil and oil is used for various parts of body or face. Then, we take massage. Herb oil is used so it has good aroma and thus, aroma therapy has healing effect.
A: Can men take aroma therapy? Is it only for women?
In fact, my husband takes aroma therapy in Bali-island with me.
A: In Bali-island.
I've heard that some aesthetic saloons in Japan are offering this service to men.
A: Oh, really.
Please try it. （といってしまったが良かったのであろうか？）
A: Next question. In Japan crimes among young people are increasing. What do you think about this?
I'm very worried about this. According to today's newspaper, one of the causes if juvenile delinquencies is no or little relationship with their fathers, and parents smothering their children is another cause.（日経に出ていた父性の欠如、自己愛について述べようとしたがここでつまづいてしまった。）So, more close relationship is necessary to prevent juvenile crimes. Another way to solve this problem is to increase the number of school counsellor. To create a better society, our society has to tackle this society.
A: So this problem is a family matter. Do you know someone involved in juvenile crime.
In my junior high school days, some of my colleagues（クラスメートと言えなかった）broke windows in class.（学校崩壊のほうにいってしまった）Our school teachers tackled problems, so I think more teachers nowadays must be involved with this problem on this matter.
A: But isn't this family matter?
A: （あまり納得しているようには見えなかったが）Next question is …. What is "Ochoko"?
Ochoko is a cup for sake. Size is this big（大きさを手で示す）We use it together with "Tokkuri", which is a sake pot.（とっくりの形を手で示す）When drinking sake, Japanese people use these things to pour sake each other.
A: So why "ochoko" is so small?.
In my opinion, if sake cup is this big（ビールグラスくらいを示す）people become drunk soon. Japanese people enjoy drinking sake for a long time, so ochoko must be so small. And then people can enjoy pouring sake each other.
A: It is a Japanese ritual.
A: You have already finished three questions. It is a little bit earlier but thank you very much.
Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity.
