My name is ............. I'm from ................ city.
B:Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you,too.
B:I'm interested in Japanese culture and I'm
going ask you several questions.
B:Are there any samurai today?
No, they aren't. Actually samurai warriors are not existent nowadays.
In the feudal ages, samurai warriors came into power around the
end of 12th century through the end of 19th century.
B:Are there any people except for samurai?
Well, besides samurai, there are many farmars and some people who
had their own business such as selling kimono like the thing.
B:Where do you recommend that I visit in Japan
during the winter?
If you are interested in skiing, I'd highly recommend you visit
Hokkaido in terms of the quality of snow. Hokkaido has a lot of
ski resorts as well as hot spring.
B:What is hot spring?
Well, Japan is a mountainous country and has a lot of volcanic chains
so there are a lot of hot springs throughout Japan. Actually I'm
from Gunma prefecture, I was born and grew up in Gunma and Gunma
has many famous hot spring resorts such as Kusatsu, Manza and Ikaho.
It's nice to soak into a hot spring while enjoying the beautiful
B:Are there any hot springs around Tokyo?
I would recommend that you visit Hakone. It's very convenient to
go to Hakone from Shinjuku. It takes about one and a half hour by
taking the express train. Hakone has a lot of hot springs, a beautiful
lake and the beautiful scenery with the view of Mt.Fuji.
B:Oh, Mt.Fuji. How to get to Mt.Fuji?
You can get to the 5th station by car and you can climb up to the
top of the mountain on foot.
B:I can 't drive a car. How should I do?
Well, you can go to Fuji....,（ええと・・という感じでつまづく）if I remember correctly,
Fuji station by train and after that you take a public bus to the
5th station of Mt.Fuji. It's very nice to climb up Mt.Fuji early
in the morning and you can enjoy the panoramic view from the top
of the mountain.
B:Oh, it's very nice! Ok, then what is the
biggest car company in Japan?
Excuse me, car...?（発音が聞き取りにくかった）
B:Yes, car （と言って、ハンドルを回すジェスチャーをして下さる）
Oh,I'm sorry. As you know Toyota is the most famous company in Japan.
It is located in Aichi prefecture and it has a lot of factories
there. The unemployment rate in Aichi prefecture is the lowest thanks
to the big sale of Toyota, I think.
B:It's very good to find jobs there!
Yes, I think so.
B:Thank you very much. Well done.
Thank you very much.
