Why Don’t You See the World?

Here Mr. Yano starts realizing that we have not ordered food yet. He apologizes me for talking too much before ordering anything, “What do you want to order, Mr. Onoe?”

“I’ll order katsu-curry and coke.”

“Excuse me, I would like to have sukiyaki-don and green tea, and katsu-curry and coke for him.”

“You know, Mr. Onoe, I’ve never been any countries and have only known of Japan in all my life. I’m just wondering what the other parts of world are like. I don’t think the other countries that are as lifeless as Japan. I want to go to Canada someday, because many people tell me that Canada is very beautiful and free country. You told me that you’ve been in Canada for several years. What do you think? Should I go to Canada?”

“Mr. Yano, I’ve been knocked about the world a wee bit, but Vancouver is the most beautiful city I’ve ever been to in my adventures. If you go there, you will feel that people are so friendly, not tense all the time like Japanese always are, not rushing everything like Japanese always do, but taking time to do something. Vancouver has a lot of beautiful sceneries that you’ll love, for sure. I really recommend you should go there someday so that you can see a different life. Life is one time, Mr. Yano, why don’t you see the world?”
