12         other side of Japan
13    L:   Yeah
14    D:   And um yeah (.)I haven’t seen people there so long and I feel
15     like I haven’t um like talked to them for ages. I’m kind of
16     let our friendship like kind of like neglected like I never
17     write to them e-mail so I really wanna see all of them again
18    L:   Yeah
19    D:   [Humm]
20    L:   [and] how long will you go for?
21    D:    Ahhh:: probably about a month like coz uni finishes around
22     end of November so December (1.0) and umm (1.5) yea and so
23     December and January probably yeah
24     L:   Yeah
25     D:    Part of January
26     L:    Do you wanna do any sightseeing while you’re there?
27     D:    Ah yea definitely, I was thinking maybe like Kyoto and stuff
28     like that but um lot of people said that Kyoto isn’t that
29     (1.0) like people say that it’s cool but actually not when
30     we get there
31     L:    [Um::]
32     D:    [It’s just] like you see a few temples and that’s it
33     L:    Depends like [um - ]
34     D:                    [Have you been there?]
35     L:    I I went to Kyoto and umm if you do go, I recommend Fushimi
36     Inari
37          ((Fushimi Inari is the name of tample))
38     D:    Ahh:  o:kay
39     L:    It’s umm you know you might seen it in um both  and  travel  40
      stuff (1.0) you  know  um  the  temple  with  like  two  thousands  41
   Toori gates . all in go up the mountain
42     D:    Yea yeah
43     L:    That’s that’s that temple
44     D:    Ahhhh::: o::kay
45     L:    and it’s really
46     D:    Waoww::
47     L:    yeah
48     D:    Yeah coz a lot of people say like one of the weirdest things
49     about it is that kind of you’ve got a really old style home
50     right next to a Mc Donald’s or a seven eleven or something
51     it’s just kind of [two eras just merged together in one city ]
52     L:                       [Oh yeah I mean- ]
53     D:    But I suppose you get that all over Japan
54     L:    Yea I mean like if you go to Kyoto expecting to see Kyoto
55           two hundred years ago then you
