Do you like the cold?


You know, I don't really think about it.


I guess I do, yes.

There's much more work...

and I am happier then.

"Please move to the front of the bus"

Do you think it will rain?

Maybe, Yes...

That's why...

I always carry an umbrella

They're very useful.

A nice umbrella.

It's a compact model.

I like it,

because it only gets bigger,

in times of need.

I love this place

Look at the state of that.

Very busy.


More umbrellas'?

Nothing special.

You like keeping cats?

No, I don't 'keep' cats.

I occassionaly play with her.

Was she a stray?


I don't know where she came from.

If I say she was a stray cat

then all cats are strays.

I'm really not sure...

But, I don't think that she was

a stray cat

If that's the case,

I am also just as free.

We were both born free.

What is that?

Dry and soft black seeds.

They're nice.

I like them very much

Immerse in water and they become

very big.

Very tasty.

They go with everything

A bit more on this...

They're good,

They enhance the flavour.

Do you always cook by yourself?

Yes, I like to cook,

as much as I can.

It gives me satisfaction,

most times.

Does your wife cook for you?

Not now.

We aren't together.

She doesn't...

Are you divorced?


For a while.

She lives with our daughter.

We don't see eye to eye.

Do you see your daughter?

Yes, we are very, very similar.

How old is she?

10 years old

Your daughter...


What is your monthly salary?

My income...?


My total income is around

300,000 Yen.

Enough to pay the rent?

Yes, it covers it.

What do you do in your free time?

That's a tricky question...

I'd like to say,

but let's not hurry things.

I don't just tell anyone.

Trust is important to me.

0 or so...

Special chow mein.

One special...

In general, how often does he come here?

About two or three times a week.

three times?

So, he's a regular?


And he always orders special chow mein?

Yes, like clockwork.

Anything else?

He doesn't order anything else,

just the special.

Nothing else?

No, that's his usual.

When did he first come here?

I really don't remember.

It's been a while now.

Did you know how famous he was?

Not really. No.

What do you think now?

Never judge a person

by his appearance.

Do you usually come

to this park?


my daughter used to play here.


think of her very often.

I like to reflect here.

You know,

I really wanted a boy.

Do you prefer boys?

It's not about preferences,

this new generation is so different.

They have...

no sense of responsibility.

But, I won't just give up on them.

Do you want another child?

I won't rule it out yet.

I just hope it's not another girl.

I have a plan,

and a strong belief.

Do you see her often?

Your daughter.


just once a month.

What do you do together?

You know,

usual stuff...

We go to the movies.

Do you ever go on holiday?

It's difficult.

I find,

I'm busy a lot with work,

and my daughter has to

go to school.

We get very little time off.


we don't go on trips.

Have you been abroad?

No, I have never been overseas.

I don't even have a passport


not because I am scared.

I'm not.

I don't have any anti-American sentiments.

Maybe, I just like

to stay close to Japan.

That's probably why.

Do you like the United States?


In these times,

there's no reason to be hostile.

It's a matter of education,

let people make up their own minds.

I don't look too deeply,

into these things.

Are you okay?


I feel embarrassed,

can you stop filming.
