Hello. This is the podcast episode 21. My speaking speed has been relatively slow lately, so today I'm going to try to speak at a more natural speed. I'll also make each sentence a bit longer, and I'll skip explaining words. It may be more difficult than usual, but I think you'll be fine with the English translations and transcripts. If there are words or expressions that you just can't understand, you can always ask me in the lesson or in the comments.


I had my dental braces on Monday this week. I had good teeth as a child, but as an adult, after my wisdom teeth came in, my teeth became misaligned. My teeth were misaligned, but it was only the front teeth and it didn't affect my life, so I left it alone, but I decided to do it because orthodontics was cheaper than I thought it would be. I had an image that it would cost around 500,000 yen, but in fact it was around 200,000 yen. I heard that in Europe it's even cheaper. People who have done it before may know that the second day was more painful than the first day. Especially the second night was painful. I was told it would take about six months. It's only the front teeth, so it's shorter than the typical orthodontic treatment that children have. It seems like those things take a couple of years.


On Friday, I went to Kyoto. A student currently living in Hokkaido came to visit me in Kyoto and we decided to meet. I was planning to go to Boston and New York last November to meet some of my students living in the US, but my flight was cancelled due to the coronavirus, so this is the first time I actually meet my student. First, we had Namafu and yuba at a restaurant. Namafu is a food made from hardened wheat protein. Yuba is made from soymilk. It was very tasty. After that we went to Kenninji Temple to see the garden and the screens. Temples in Kyoto are usually very crowded, but after the coronavirus, they are empty and easy to see. The weather was nice and pleasant. The weeping cherry trees were beautiful. Finally, we went to the Yojiya Café. Yojiya is a famous cosmetics brand in Kyoto. I had a lot of fun and we talked a lot more than we did in the lessons. Thank you for inviting me, Momo!


Well, I think that’s it for today. See you next time and thanks for listening!
