2/7 PM (Thursday’s technical class’s presentation story ‘ I love Fukuoka ’ )

Good afternoon everyone. How are you doing? Thank you for listening to my talk Today. I’d like to tell you about Fukuoka prefecture in Japan.
Have you ever been to Fukuoka? What do you have the image about Fukuoka?
I know that Yasuma’s hometown is Fukuoka.
And Fukuoka is my most favorite place in Japan. So I select Fukuoka as today’s thema.
I lived several city such as Sapporo, Tokyo, Shizuoka, Osaka, Hyogo and Fukuoka. All of those city are nice place to live in, but today I especially want to introduce Fukuoka. I was working for a company in Tokyo thirty five years ago. And I was getting tired with a tough commutation in Tokyo for almost 2 hours.
Then I said to my boss “ I hope to transfer to a local city somewhere.”
About two weeks later, he brought me two answers. One was Kanazawa and the other was Fukuoka.
Kanazawa was a snowy city so it was called ‘snow country’ and yukiguni’ in Japanese. I wanted to live in a warm place so I said to my boss “ Thank you for your awareness.
I decide to go to Fukuoka.” Therefore I was transferred to Fukuoka next month.
The house rent of Fukuoka was cheaper and it was about half of Tokyo.
Since Fukuoka was surrounded by the sea, fish were fresh and very cheap.
After I lived in Fukuoka, I noticed that there were many beauties in Fukuoka.
I lived in Fukuoka for ten years, and next I was transferred to Osaka.
A few years later, I had an opportunity to go to Fukuoka with a person who had never been Fukuoka. At that business trip, we arrived at Fukuoka, he was surprised because almost all of women we met were so beautiful.
He said “ Why are there such many beauty in Fukuoka? “
So I was convinced that “ Fukuoka has a lot of beauties.”
What do you think about it?
I want to tell you my opinion why there were many beauties in Fukuoka.
It’s because Fukuoka is a good trade center with overseas from old time about 1,000 years ago. From China, Korea and South Asia, many people crossed the sea and came to Fukuoka frequently. So the blood of an overseas and Japanese were mixed together. A mixed blood made a beautiful person commonly.
What do you think about it? Do you know the Molena ?
That is the typical beauty in the world and it is also blood mixed.
I think Hakata beauty is also typical beauty in Japan.
If you have never been Fukuoka I recommend you to go there.
If you like seafood, I strongly recommend ,you should go Nakasu and try to urchin.
You’ll be surprised because it’s will be carried by a case. And It’s so delicious and
too cheap. And probably you’ll find beautiful women around you.
Thank you for your attention. Please if there are some questions.

My buddy Hiroshi always talked about joining JICA and working overseas for a couple of years, but he only talked about it. So I gave him a push, telling him that it was a great opportunity. Finally, he decided to give it a go. He had to prepare first, he started by giving away all of his things: his house, his car.
He left and didn’t hear from him for a while. After a year and a half, he gave me a call and said that one of local staff had given him the chance to stay and work full time.
He analyzes living situations. So he decided to give up on going back to his hometown.
Nowadays he goes diving and hangs out with locals and builds a strong relationship with the locals. Sometimes he goes shopping in the capital.
