Japanese Script

やまなかなのに、このレストランはにんがあるみたいだ。」「そうみたいだ。ごはんをべるのがたのしみだ。」二人ふたりはそうってあおいドアをけました。すると、あおいドアのうらにはこういてありました。

ちゅうもんおおいですが、まんしてください。”

「これはどういう意味いみだ?」「このレストランはちゅうもんおおいから、ごはんをつくるのにかんがかかるということだよ。」「ああ、たぶんそうだ。はやあたたかい部屋へやはいりたいね。」
「うん、ぼくはいすにすわりたいよ。」しかし、またべつのドアがありました。ドアにかがみがついています。

ふくくつをきれいにしてください。”

「うん、ふくをきれいにするのは大切たいせつだよね。」「そうだね。さあ、きれいにしよう。」

English Translation

“Even though it’s in the mountain, it seems that this restaurant is popular.” “It seems so. I’m looking forward to eating a meal.” They said that and then opened the blue door. Then, this was written on the back of the blue door;

“Please be patient, as we have many orders.”

“What does this mean?” “It means that this restaurant has many orders, so it takes some time to make a meal.” “Maybe that’s true. I want to enter a warm room soon.” “Yeah, I want to sit down on a chair.” But, there was another door. The door had a mirror.

“Please clean your clothes and shoes.”

“Right, it’s important to clean clothes.” “That’s right. Let’s clean.”
