Dialogue 1, page 83
Miller: Takahashi, I would like to talk with you about something.
Takahashi: Ah, OK, what would you like to talk about?
Miller: The truth is, it’s about club activities. I’m considering joining the karate club, what do you think?
Takahashi: Is that so. Well, it’s a Japanese sport, so I guess it’s a good idea.
Miller: Yes, but, in Japanese clubs, the superior-subordinate relationship with senpai and kouhai is so strict, so I worry a little about that…
Takahashi: Is that so. Well, I guess that’s true. But when it comes to karate, no matter what doujo (karate club) you go to, won’t you always find the superior-subordinate relationship with senpai and kouhai?
Miller: Is that so.
Takahashi: When you go back to America, it will be hard to do karate, so why don’t you get some experience with it now?
Miller: Yes, you’re right. Well, I guess I’ll try to join the club.
Takahashi: Yes, I think that’s a good idea. Good luck!
