Impressive ― beautiful sunsets and smiling audience! We interviewed a wonderful performing arts company in the Setouchi Summer Night Festival 2018 (until August 5), Strange Fruit ― presenting attractive performances mixing with music and lights. The members from Australia, Veronica Waite, Daniel Newell, Scott MacBurnie and Emily Ryan talked about their impressions about the city of Takamatsu and their stay.
Q. What kind of impression do you have of Takamatsu?
Waite: I like it. It's cute. After being in Osaka and Tokyo, it's nice while it's small. We also went to Karaoke and jazz bar at nights…and we liked sake.
Newell: Stunning sunset. It was amazing.
MacBurnie: People also. And the foods. It's very calm and peaceful.
Q. We've heard that you'd gotton to the top of Mt. Yashima. How was it?
Waite: I love the view. It's very beautiful.
MacBurnie: The view was absolutely stunning. It was a different perspective of Takamatsu. I was looking down, and you can get an idea about where the sea is…
Newell: Beautiful birds fly and sing… That was good.
Q. Do you like foods in Takamatsu? What did you have for meals?
MacBurnie: We like fish. We enjoyed raw fish because it's very fresh.
Q. Where's your most favorite place in Takamatsu?
Ryan: I was just riding my bike alone around Sunport, it was very comfortable.
Newell: Here. The sunset, the mountain… it's very beautiful. Imagine standing at six meters pole, and see directly the sunset. And looking down, beautiful people are smiling and clapping hands. It's a pretty magical place.
Q. How do you describe people in Takamatsu? Did you communicate with them?
Newell: Yes, they're very friendly.
Ryan: And helpful. If we can't do something, they help this and this. It's good.
Q. Do you think the people in Australia will like Takamatsu?
Ryan: Yes, everyone they come to Japan, they come to Takamatsu.
MacBurnie: I think the Australian's sense of humor and personality is getting very well with those in Takamatsu. So I think they're getting along very well.
Waite: Yes, I want to introduce this city to my friends when I get back to Australia.
