Q1: Why do Anna and David love Japan?

You showed me around the town in New Jersey. Do you remember?
Yeah. Now it’s your turn to show us Nagasaki.
My pleasure, what do you think about Japan so far?
I love it here. People are so nice.
I agree. We didn’t know how to buy tickets at the station, and a high school girl helped us.
And when we got lost in the station, a kind man showed us to the right platform.
A1: Because people are very nice.

-Q2: Why will Sarah wake up early?
Hi, Sarah! Nagasaki is great!
We just visited an interesting museum.
Isn’t Nagasaki famous for its beautiful night view?
Yes. My father will take us to the best place to see that.
Can you give me a video phone call from there? I want to see that.
There is a time difference.
No problem. I’ll wake up early. What time will you go? I don’t know yet. I’ll send you an e-mail later.
A2: Because she wants to see a night view ( of Nagasaki).

Q3: Is Miki going to show the secret way to the top of the rocks?
I often came to this beach with my parents when I was small.
The water is calm and clear.
It looks like a good place to swim.
It is. Look at those rocks over there. We always caught many fish there. We brought them home for dinner.
Can you climb those rocks? It looks dangerous.
It’s not. There is a secret way to get to the top.
Really? Can you show it to us?
Why not?
A3: Yes, she is.

-Tell Us More
What did you think about Japan when you first came here?
When I first came to Japan, I was amazed. I arrived in Shinjuku, neighborhood of Tokyo in the evening. There were so many people. I also remember all the lights, and the signs on the building written in Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. I was so excited.
How old were you then, Geoff?
I was twenty-five.
So young.
Yeah.
Well, when I first came to Japan, I felt like I arrived at home. I still fell that way, although Tokyo is a big city, there are so small many communities. I feels relaxing and quiet. It’s also very surprising to see so many green spaces, and plants everywhere in Tokyo.
I thought so too. You know Tokyo is rated one of the most expensive cities in the world. However, we can easily find cheap restaurants. Their food is delicious, and yet it is not expensive.
So true.

There are also many cheap Teisyoku restaurants. They are run by wonderful local families. I enjoyed spending time with them and eating their delicious food.
