OMINOUS RUMORS:

CONTINUE TO SPREAD

Yes.

Have I seen all the footage?

Good. Let me know.

We are running out of time.

Is everything ready?

Professor Ryo?

Yes.

My name is Kazunori Ittoku.

I will be your interpreter.

Hopefully you will have

something to interpret.

We don't know if he can speak.

Can you tell me your name please?

Can you tell us your name?

Do you understand me?

Yes.

I understand.

American, I think. Hard to tell.

Where am I?

Where am I?

You're safe now.

You are safe now.

Do you remember what happened to you?

Do you remember what happened

to you?

Is this a hospital?

He asks if this is a hospital.

Tell him it is a type of hospital.

It is like a hospital.

I don't understand.

We will find out... who you are.

Play it.

Hey. It's me, Kate.

Got the new camera

and it's ready to go to Japan.

So, my boyfriend is flying in

from San Francisco.

I wish he was on my flight,

but that's okay.

I need to sleep on the plane

anyway.

And I don't know how Chris

is going to react to traveling.

So, Chris is one of my

closest childhood friends.

We went to kindergarten

together.

And what's cool is

he speaks some Japanese,

and he really needs this trip.

He needs some good luck.

Good mojo.

He actually had a breakdown

earlier this year.

His brother died in a horrific

accident.

You know, we've been

talking a lot and I...

I think he's doing okay.

So I'm doing my thesis

on religious studies,

specifically how religion

changes myth and vice versa,

and I want to photograph

obscure Shinto shrines

and Buddhist temples in rural

Japan.

Do you recognize this woman?

Do you know this woman?

Where did you get this?

He asked where you got this

material.

He asked where you got this material.

What is her name?

Yeah, is it nice?

All right, I don't know. Hold

on.

Excuse me, how long 'til we get

there?

Excuse me. How much longer to the hotel?

Ten minutes.

Ten minutes.

You hear that?

Okay, see ya soon.

I love you too.

Bye.

I can't believe you still

haven't met.

Has it really been that long

since I saw you?

Yeah. Goes by in a blink.

Well, I'm really glad you came.

Me too.

Nice to finally meet you.

I was beginning to think you

didn't exist.

- You good?

- - Yeah.

All right.

SOBA:

He's, uh...

He's not at all like I imagined.

What did you imagine?

I don't know.

Not him.

You don't like him.

Yeah, sure. Sure I do. Yeah.

I like him. He seems fine.

No you don't.

You're just telling me

what I want to hear.

Like, you two have been friends

for how long?

I just can't believe

he's never tried anything.

Yeah, well, not everyone is

like you.

If you say so.

Are you jealous?

No.

I'm not.

Should I be jealous?

'Cause I'll be jealous.

Three tickets to Oyama, please.

- Here you go.

- Thank you very much.

So, how'd you come to learn

Japanese?

Always wanted to come here.

Is it what you expected?

So far.

You know, if we had trains

like this in America

I would not travel any other

way.

You two have been friends for a

long time.

I've never had that kind of

relationship with a woman.

What are you guys talking about?

You.

You guys want anything

from the dining car?

I'm good. Thanks.

Kate?

She's good.

So, this is our room.

Feeling like a third wheel.

It's only for one night.

Are we looking for anything

in particular, or...

Babe, how about this?

Exactly.
