(HAPPY SONG)
Narrator:
Justin and Sakura have been together lovingly for 3 years and have just decided to visit Sakura’s parent and go for a holiday with Justin’s mother. Sakura is then 6 months pregnant. Justin and Sakura could not visit Sakura’s parent earlier as they were not financially stable due to the buying of their house and renovating it. Only until now, they had enough money for the air tickets to Japan and they then decided to fly there, Osaka on March during the season of Spring so that they can view the Sakura just in time. They took Singapore Airlines (SIA) to Japan and landed at Kansai International Airport in Japan. Sakura’s hometown is located at Hiroshima. Thus, they took Shinkansen to reach Hiroshima in the fastest way.
SCENE ONE
Narrator:
At Mother Mareeyah’s house, the moment Sakura and her mother meet each other, they hugged each other ever so tightly. They then started to tear because they miss each other so badly as its been 3 year since they last saw each other.
(After drying their tears)
Sakura: Mum, This is Justin, remember?
Justin: Hello! Good afternoon!
Mother Mareeyah: Good afternoon!
Sakura: Justin’s mother followed us here today too and this is Justin’s mother. (Shows mother mareeyah, Justin’s mother)
Mother Lucy: Hello! Good Afternoon! Nice to see you again after so long!
Mother Mareeyah: Yes, nice to see you again too!
(Mother Mareeyah enter her room)
Mother Mareeyah: Here’s a small welcome token for you.
(-Hands gift to Justin’s mother, Lucy-)
Mother Lucy: Oh, thanks so much! (Rushed to open the token.)
(-Mother Mareeyah gives a disgusted look-)
Justin: Hey mum, stop it!! That’s very rude! Please respect the Japanese culture!
Mother Lucy: HUH??? What???? What wrong have I done??
Justin: In Japanese culture, the gift receiver should not open the gift in front of the giver. It’s very rude to do that you know..
Mother Lucy: Opps, sorry!
Mother Mareeyah: It’s okay.

(CLASSIC SONG)
SCENE TWO

At the pancake café…
Waiter: Hi, good afternoon! Table for..?
Mother Mareeyah: Hi, table for 3. Thank you
Waiter shows them their table..
Waiter: This is the menu, Madams..
Sakura, Mother Lucy and Mother Mareeyah: Ok, thanks.
After browsing the pancake menu..
Sakura: Any chef recommendations?
Waiter: Um, we would recommend the Amazing pancake that contains banana with an chocolate flavoured ice cream on top.
Sakura: I see. So is it alright with you all that we order the Amazing pancake?
Mother Mareeyah and Mother Lucy: Sure!
Sakura: OK, we shall have 3 sets of the Amazing pancakes and three glasses of ice water.
Waiter: Any more orders?
Sakura: Do you all want anything else?
Mother Lucy: A set of octopus balls for us to share please.
Waiter: Certainly, please wait a moment.
When the food arrived…

Sakura: OK, let’s eat.

Mother Mareeyah, Sakura: Itadakimasu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mother Mareeyah, Sakura: (Stunned O.O)
Sakura: (Pulled Mother Lucy away)

In the hospital…
(Doctor came out of the operation theatre): I tried my best. Here’s your baby.
Justin: What do you mean, Doctor???? Where is my wife????????
Doctor: I’m very sorry… Your wife has left for a better place in heaven.. I do want this to happen too. You should let her go..
(Nurse passed the baby to Justin)

Accidental Tourist

...The Choice Compared to other novels that deal with love affairs and romances, The Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler is different because it takes the reader on a trip through the character’s minds. Macon Leary’s wife separates herself from him. Their problems begin with the death of their son, Ethan Leary. That is not to say that they agree on raising him, because they didn’t. “When Ethan was born, he only brought out more of their differences” (16). They choose to raise Ethan differently. Sarah wants to let him be happy and free, while Macon wants him to be more scheduled and structured. The already struggling relationship is now even more troubled. Macon is not an affectionate person and his wife, Sarah, would surely validate that. When he is going away on business and needs somewhere to board his dog Edward, he encounters Muriel Pritchett, who is straightforward and strange with her introduction. In the beginning it is hard to determine what Macon’s choice will be. If he chooses Sarah, he may not be able to have her because of the way that she feels. Although Macon still feels connected to Sarah, he is more compatible with Muriel. Sarah is arguably much more normal than Macon, depending on which definition of normal is used. Sarah is more of a team player than Macon is. Macon keeps to his systems, while Sarah wants them to make decisions together. “What harm would it do to wait it out? You’d be showing some concern. You’d be telling me we’re in this......

...LONDON — Japan issued a travel alert for Europe on Monday, joining the United States and Britain in warning of a possible terrorist attack by al-Qaida or other groups. The Foreign Ministry in Tokyo urged Japanese citizens to be cautious when using public transport or visiting popular tourist sites. European authorities tightened efforts to keep the public safe in the wake of warnings by officials in several countries that the terrorism threat is high and extra vigilance is warranted. Washington warned Sunday that al-Qaida might target transport infrastructure. The U.S. State Department issued a warning directed at American citizens traveling in Europe, without singling out any specific countries, saying tourists should proceed with caution. Britain raised the terrorism threat level in its advice for citizens traveling to Germany and France to "high" from "general." It left the threat level at home unchanged at "severe," meaning an attack is highly likely, and said it agreed with the U.S. assessment for the continent as a whole. On Monday, French authorities arrested a man in his 50s who is suspected of several bomb threats in Paris, including one at a railway hub, a police official said. The man, who was not identified, was detained southwest of the capital on suspicions of links to a phoned-in threat at the Saint-Lazare train station. French authorities have recorded nine bomb alerts in the capital last month, including at the Eiffel Tower — a threefold......

Tourist from Syracuse

...The tourist from Syracuse The tourist from Syracuse, written by Donald justice, is a poem about the different personas within the city of Syracuse. The poet is able to explore all the different kinds of personalities by narrating the poem in the form of a story through specific details. The poem is very direct in approaching the reader and could be perceived as a threat by the reader exploring the dangers of Syracuse. The poet explores the different themes of Dark, light, coldness, death and ambiguousness to metaphorically represent the threat of the Italian mafias in the city of Syracuse, but in the different forms of personas. The theme of ambiguousness is portrayed through the representation of all the random people with everyday lives and with different stories that the reader may not be aware of. For example, in the last two lines of stanza six and the first line of stanza seven, the speaker claims himself to be of a different identity. The person next to you could be a “used car-salesman, a tourist from Syracuse or a fired assassin” as the poem states. The speaker is addressing the reader directly stating that the speaker is every stranger we have ever been around. We might have noticed them, or they might have noticed us, but the transformation from one identity to another keeps the speaker’s personality unclear. The ambiguousness of the speaker makes the tone of the poem mysterious. The tones is expressed in lines such as “My name is names and none” and “Familiar,...

...More Globalization To Solve Japan's Prolonged Economic Stagnation: 2020 Tokyo Olympic, Establishment of Foreign Companies and Cultural Reform/Cultural Ramification Before Japan was globalized it was secluded from the rest of the world for nearly two centuries from1603 to 1868. This time period was called the Tokugawa Period. Even though Japan closed its ports to foreign trade, it was self sustainable and independent. This self sustainable society was maintained through its unique producer-consumer relationship and the "reuse recycle" practice in commerce due to the island's limited resources. Repair merchants such as tinker, ceramics repairers and truss hoop repairers supported a society where nothing was thrown away but instead carefully repaired and reused until the products were truly un-amendable. For example, tinkers used special techniques and charcoal heat to weld holes in pots and kettles with other metals; ceramic repairers glue broken ceramic pieces together with sticky rice and applied heat; paper makers buy used papers and blend them to make a variety of paper from writing paper to toilet paper (Staff). The Tokugawa Period served as a model of a flourishing sustainable society to the Japanese. After Japan was introduced to globalization during the Second World War, the nation benefited from becoming a export driven economy, business policies such as the lifetime employment policy promoted the efficiency of the company, and the cultural influences on business......

Moto: Coming to America from Japan

...Moto: Coming to America from Japan Moto arrived in Chicago in the middle of winter, unprepared for the raw wind that swept off the lake. The first day he bought a new coat and fur-lined boots. He was cheered by a helpful salesgirl who smiled as she packed his lined raincoat into a box. Americans were nice, Moto decided. He was not worried about his assignment in America. The land had been purchased, and Moto’s responsibility was to hire a contracting company and check on the pricing details. The job seemed straightforward. Moto’s firm, KKD, an auto parts supplier, had spent a year and a half researching U.S. building contractors. Allmack had the best record in terms of timely delivery and liaisons with good architects and the best suppliers of raw materials. That night Moto called Mr. Crowell of Allmack, who confirmed the appointment for the next morning. His tone was amiable. Moto arrived at the Allmack office at nine sharp. He had brought a set of kokeshi dolls for Crowell. The dolls, which his wife had spent a good part of a day picking out, were made from a special maple in the mountains near his family home in Niigata. He would explain that to Crowell later, when they knew each other. Crowell also came from a hilly, snowy place, which was called Vermont. When the secretary ushered him in, Crowell stood immediately and rounded the desk with an outstretched hand. Squeezing Moto’s hand, he roared, “How are you? Long trip from Tokyo. Please sit......

Japan

...Cultural Perspectives of Japan William Earl Barnes Jr. Abstract Japan is an island country sited east of the mainland of Asia. It is made up of a long, slender group of islands. The four main islands are Honshu (the largest), Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Shikoku. There are more than three thousand smaller islands. Together, they have about the identical land area as the state of California. Across the Sea of Japan to its north and west are Russia and South Korea. To the east, where the sun rises, Japan borders the Pacific Ocean. The Japanese call their nation Nippon, which means “Land of the Rising Sun” Japan has a remarkable landscape. Mountains and hills cover most of the land. A chain of mountains runs down the middle of Japan. Snow-capped Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest peak, towers over Honshu Island. Swift streams flow from the mountains into the sea. Thick forests cover the mountainsides where deer and monkeys make their homes in the spring; the countryside is colored pink and white with the blossoms of plum and cherry trees. In southern Japan, summers are long and hot. In the north, winters are cold and snowy. Central Japan has an enjoyable climate, with warm summers and cool winters. The country is often shaken by volcanic explosions and earthquakes. Japan’s first powerful rulers were chiefs from the Yamato region. During the Yamatos’ rule, many visitors from other lands came to Japan. Scholars from china brought the Chinese writing system in the 400s. They also......
