May I have a seat?
B : Please sit down.
B : Please tell us your name.
My name is ...
B : Where do you live?
I live in Ikeda City, Osaka.
B : How long did it take you to come here?
It took me about two hours.
B : Do you like Kyoto?
Yes, I like Kyoto very much. I come here often with friends to visit temples and restaurants.
A : Now, I'm going to ask you some questions.
A : Recently, I see many Western models in Japanese fashion magazines. How do you feel about this?
Well, I think it is because Western clothes are originally designed for Westerners, so it looks better on them, in the way that kimonos look better on Japanese.
A : That's interesting, but I see man beautiful Japanese models wearing Western clothes.
Yes, that's true. There are many Japanese models who are tall and have long legs and arms.
A : OK, next question is ... There is an increasing number of temporary workers in Japan. What do you think about this?
There are good things and bad things about this. Temporary workers may not be motivated enough because they don't know if they will be hired again the following year, but people can change jobs since they have less pressure.
A : Do you think foreign workers don't have enough motivation to work?
（"foreign temporary workers"についての質問だったのかと思い、勘違いをして答えたとショックを受け、言葉に詰まった）
A : Please explain "ema".
"Ema" is a picture tablet dedicated to shrines. People write their wishes, and an "ema" usually has a picture of a horse because people used to dedicate live horses.
A : Oh, really? What kind of wishes do people usually make?
I think success in entrance exams to schools is the most popular wish.
A : Thank you very much.
