  4. I read “Australian girl in Japan to learn sumo.”
    I was very surprised at the super girl.
    I want her to be more famous for understanding Japanese culture in Australia.

  5. I read “Broome tells Japanese city to stop dolphin slaughter”.
    I was suprised to read the news.
    I think they have to try understand each culture.

    I read report about dolphin.
    I think this problem is too hard to find right answer, because custom is different from each culture.
