B: Hello. Please sit down.（にこやか。細い目がしわの一本に見えるくらいだった。）
Hello. Thank you.
B: Please tell us your name.
My name is ......
B: Where do you live?
I live in ...., ... Prefecture.
A: Let me ask you some questions. Why do Japanese like massage or aroma therapy?
Well.... This is because many Japanese have suffered from stress, ... stress related to work. They work hard, so they need something to relax themselves. Japanese need massage or aroma therapy to relax.
A: Ok. Which is more popular, massage or aroma therapy? Which do you like better?
I think, maybe, aroma therapy is more convenient, because we can use aroma therapy at home. But I like massage, because I can relax and it's not a daily thing. We don't have such occasions often. So even if I have to pay for massage, I want to have massage.
B: Do you often have massage?
Well, only when I go to hot springs. I usually call for massage there.
B: Is it good?
It is so good. I can relax. Nothing can beat that feeling than having massage.
（A, B 笑う。英語が少しおかしかったのか、Aは笑う中にもとまどいがあるように思えたが、笑うことでごまかせた感じ。）
B: Ok.... What do you think about the "super ice-age"?
Well, it is a serious problem. Especially, young people are damaged most from this phenomenon. I think government should take an appropriate measure to improve the situation. For example, the government should encourage companies to hire young people as probation, probationary (?) period. And if they find them good, they hire them as full-time employees. They should establish measures like this to improve the situation.
B: Ok, finally, what is "onigiri"?
Onigiri is a rice ball consisting of rice and such ingredients as broiled salted salmon, or pickled plum or other ingredients, It is usually rolled with dried seaweed. We often make onigiri for such occasions as picnic or when we go out somewhere. It is very convenient to carry and delicious. And we can enjoy eating it with our family. We can spend a good time with our family.
B: Is onigiri expensive?
No, I don't think so. It's not expensive. It costs around 120 yen. But it depends on how many you eat.（B笑う。）But generally, it's not an expensive item.
B: Ok, thank you.
You are welcome.
B: Have a nice day.
Thank you. You, too.
