A： I will ask you a few questions. Please tell me about Japanese geography?
Japan is surrounded by the sea and is composed of many islands. And 70% of the land is mountainous areas. Japan's closest neighbors are Korea, Russia and China. The Sea of Japan separates the Asian continent from the Japanese archipelago. Since Japan is located in a region, where several continental plates meet, there are many volcanoes. Japan's most famous volcano and highest mountain is Mt. Fuji. Also, these volcanoes cause many hot springs, which are a part of Japanese culture.
A： How many islands are there in Japan?
A： Yes, islands.
Japan consists of several thousands of islands, of which Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku are the four largest.
A： Can you tell me the most famous castle in Japan?
I think Himeji Castle is the most famous castle in Japan. It is also called “White Heron Castle” because its appearance is like a white heron. It is one of the few castles that retains its original form and has not been rebuilt.
A： Where would you recommend for sightseeing in Japan?
A： Who do you think is the most important person in Japanese history?
He was born in a poor farm family. In spite of his disadvantageous background,
he rose from peasant status to the ruler of all Japan and brought an end
to the Sengoku period or the Age of Civil War. He is also noted for a
number of cultural legacies, including the restriction that only members
of the samurai class could bear arms.
A： Let’s change the topic.
Suppose I am a foreign tourist with my daughter and my daughter has a sudden stomach ache, what should I do?
If her condition seems to be serious, you should dial 119 to call an ambulance. You can use an ambulance anytime and any where in Japan. The ambulance can take her to the nearest hospital and emergency crew can give her first aid. Of course, on the phone, some English-speaking operators are available. So, you do not have to worry about a language problem.
