My name is ○○○○.

B: Where do you live?

I live in ○○○○, Tokyo.

A: Why do Japanese children have a lot of cards, toys, etc?

(カードの意味が分からず聞き返したが、toyと言ったので、次のように回答したが、家で子供に聞いたら、ポケモンのカードらしい)

Parents, grandparents and relatives give those toys. But I don't think that's good. It might spoil the child, because they have so many things to do such as homework. And I think it is much more important to play outside with their friends.

A: Why do a Japanese husband get a small amount of money every month from their wife?

It comes from the traditional role between a husband and a wife. Husbands work outside to earn money, and leave everything including house budget to their wives. That's why. In my case, I control the family budget every month.

A: Why don't Japanese husbands clean the toilet?

This also comes from the traditional role of a husband and a wife. But under the Equal Opportunity Law, and because some females or housewives have started working lately,

(しどろもどろしながら)

Japanese husbands are changing. Actually some husbands do housework to help their wives.

A: What is "Seijin-no-hi"?

"Seijin-no-hi" is "Coming-of-Age Day," which is held on January 15th in their hometowns where they were born.

(不十分な答えになってしまった)

A: Any presents?

Yes.

A: Why does Japan send SDF to Iraq?

SDF is not a military force. In order to co-operate with other Western countries and U.N., Koizumi government decided to send SDF to that country. So that Japan will contribute a lot to world peace.

A: Do you think Prime Minister is good so far?

Yes, I think so. Koizumi has done a good job so far. Regarding diplomatic affairs, he should be careful a little bit. Some Asian countries such as China and South Korea are opposed to Koizumi’s behavior. I think we should need to talk further with these countries to have a good relationship.

A: OK. That's it. Thank you.

Thank you very much.
