@Hiroshima Flower Festival

(Crowd noise)

W: Wow! There sure are a lot of people! Thanks Keito for bringing me to Flower Festival. It’s actually my first time experiencing a Japanese festival.

M: No problem, Laura. It’s my pleasure to bring friends to Japanese festivals!

W: There sure are a lot of food stalls here! Some stalls are even for mini-games! Look at those balloons and fish!

M: You can eat a lot of Japanese street food here such as takoyaki, yakisoba, apple candies. But those games are actually really hard.

W: Have you tried any of those games?

M: Of course! I used to play the kingyo-sukui every year when I was little.

W: Can you show me how to do it then?

M: Oh, of... of course!

W: Um, it looks like you became a bit worried when I asked you to do it?

M: Alright then, I’ll SHOW you how to get one!

W: Go Keito Go!

(Sounds of water splashing)

M: Ugh..

W: Ha ha ha! Keito! You’re really bad at this! Let ME show you!

(Sounds of water splashing)

M: Wow Laura! You’re really good at this! How come?!

W: The first time I came to Japan, another friend brought me to a festival in Kyoto. I became good at kingyo-sukui there.

M: So, you were lying about this being your first festival?

W: I wanted to surprise you, Keito! Ha ha!

M: Alright.. What else are you not telling me?

W: Well, I’m actually half Japanese! And I can speak fluent Japanese! Haha!

M: Oh my.. all this time I was trying my best to speak in English with you.
