Exactly!!

Those who can not speak English in practice do not understand how to put each word in your head into a sentence (Basic Talk Act).

Therefore, when I tried speaking I could not understand the order to convert to English, so I got caught or could not get out of a word conversation.

Exactly!!

The impression on the first day is unlimitedly bad

Slightly ahead, there is a guy who seems to be a security guard, I approached him thinking of directions.

That man who felt faintly the Tohoku accent is the first to open me to ask.

“Well, Mom, the place you went straight is Writing Yamanote Line!”
When.

That way of speaking is arrogant and mean, and you are not strangers anyway!
I thought like that.

Besides, I barely held down my desire to say before saying thank you that I’m not your mother.

Oh, I remember.
When I came to Tokyo for the first time 30 years ago,
I was sad and angry and I just wanted to return to Osaka.

The impression of Initial Tokyo was unlimited and bad.

少し前方に、警備員らしき男性がいる、その人に道案内をと思って近づく。

東北訛りがかすかに感じられるその男性は、尋ねる私に、開口一番。

「あのね、お母さん、まっすぐに行ったところが山手線って書いているでしょう!」
と。

その口のきき方が、横柄で意地悪で、あんたも所詮、よそ者じゃない!
私はそんなふうに、思った。

それに、私はあんたのお母さんじゃないですよ、とお礼を言う前に言ってやりたい気持ちを辛うじて、抑えた。

あぁ、思い出す。
30年前に初めて上京したとき、この東京人のモノノ言いように私は、
哀しくて腹立たしくて、そのまま大阪に帰りたくなった。

初東京の印象は限りなく、悪かった。
