PART E_2

In Japan, a common way to obtain what you want is to go to a store. In the US, however, people often make purchases informally among themselves. For example, if you want a pet or a used car, you can probably find many classified adds in your local newspaper. The prices are often much lower than those at stores. It is important to communicate well with the owners, as these ads often do not have any kind of guarantees. On the bright side, the prices are often negotiable. If you are someone who doesn’t like secondhand products, or need a warranty when you buy something, you should probably shop at a store. But if you’re adventurous enough to explore the market yourself, you might find it fun to “shop” through these ads.

Broadway musicals in New York City are a popular attraction for both tourists and local New Yorkers. Many old and popular stories, as well as new ones, are made into musical shows. There are over 40 Broadway theaters in New York’s Theater District. In Japan, you have to book a theater seat a few months in advance; but in New York, all Broadway theaters have 500 or more seats, so it’s much easier to get a ticket. Also, there are many smaller, “Off Broadway” theaters in the Theater District. Off Broadway shows are more intimate and often more experimental. A wide variety of shows are performed in those theaters. Some musicals, such as “A Chorus Line” or “Rent,” both very famous in Japan, were first performed in Off Broadway theaters.
