Good afternoon!

‘Sˆ๕: Good afternoon.

CF Now you can leave your bag on that chair.

Thank you.

CF Now, I am going to ask you your name and address and then the lady next@to me will ask you some questions about Japan.
Please tell me your name.

My name is ››.

CF Where do you live?

I live in Yokohama city.

CF How did you come here this afternoon?

In fact, I first went to my office in Shibuya to finish some works this morning.
I came here after finishing my work and arrived here very early.

AF What do you think are the misconceptions or misunderstandings that foreigners have about Japan?

I think still today, there are some foreigners who think Japanese people still wear Kimono in daily life.
Also, some people think that all the Japanese live on tatami and sleep in futon.
In fact, they are not true. These days, you find very few people wearing Kimono except for some special occasions.
As you see, we wear western clothes.
New houses are equipped with western style so that people now live in western style.
People use chair, table and beds.

AF What are the differences of people living in big cities and country side?

In fact, you find many people living in the big cities such as Tokyo and Yokohama are from country side.
However, probably, I could say, people in the big cities do not care much about neighborhood, and they only care about themselves.
On the contrary, people live in the country side do care about neighborhood,
sometimes too much.

AF Tell me about Sento.

Nowadays, the number of Sento in the big cities are getting less.
This is because newly built houses are equipped with bath that people do not have to go out to take bath.
By the way, Sento is a public bath.

AF What do you think about pension?

The pension scheme in Japan is changing dramatically during these two to three years. I myself have a problem with It.
My company tells us today that you have to care about your pension by yourself. However, I do not have much knowledge about it.
It used to be looked after by company. I cannot manage to handle by myself as I only had short time to study about.

AF Well. Thank you. I think we finish here.

Thank you. And goodbye.
