B:First of please tell me your name and where you live.
My name is .... and I live in ....
A:I want ask you about Japanese rainy season, please explain.
Rainy season in Japan usually starts middle of June and lasts one month.
A: Okay, then can you explain about difference of weather between Hokkaido and Okinawa ?
As Hokkaido is located in the northern part of Japan so it is cool in summer but very cold in winter. They have heavy snow. While Okinawa is located southern part of Japan, temperature over there is higher in all the year and even winter season temperature will not be less than 20'C.
A: I see. Then when do you think the best season to visit Hokkaido?
It depends on what you are interested in, but if you like ski, of course winter season is the best and as Hokkaido have many hot springs resorts, you can also enjoy onsen. ( ここで 本来ならば スキーに興味のない人であれば 夏に 知床などの国立公園を訪れるのもよい、言うべきであったが つい忘れてしまった)。
A: How about the best season to visit Okinawa ?
I recommend summer! Because Okinawa is very famous for its beautiful sea, beach, coral reef, so you can enjoy diving, snorkeling and fishing etc.
A: I would like to know about Olympics. Was there any Olympics in Japan?
Yes, In 1964, we had Tokyo Olympics.
A:How about winter Olympics ?
Around 10 years ago, we had Winter Olympics in Nagano.
A:Is there any possibility to have Olympics again in Japan soon ?
Yes there is. Tokyo is one of candidates of host city for Olympics in 2016 after Beijing in 2008, and London in 2016.
A:Okay let's go back to about Okinawa. I don't know about Okinawa and can you explain about Okinawa?
Okinawa is located southern part of Japan and it takes around 3 hours by plane. There are many beautiful sea and beaches. As for cultural aspects, Okinawa was independent and had a trade relationship with Japan, Taiwan, China etc, we can see certain difference of culture from mainland of Japan ( 具体的な事例が挙げられなかった).
A:How about their mentality ? I mean people in Osaka is very lively, how about people in Okinawa ?
I'm not so sure as I do not have friends from Okinawa and do not have experience to work with the. But according to TV drama, I have feeling that they are also lively but rather shy ( あまり沖縄県民の知識がなく NHKの朝ドラ 「ちゅらさん」 を思い出しながら回答しましたが Lively と shy が相容れないように思いますので適切な回答ではなかったと反省しています)。
A: Okay time is up. Thank you. Now you can leave.
Thank you, and nice talking with you. Good by.
