A, B: Good morning.
B: Please have a seat. Put your bag there.
B: May I have your name?
My name is ….
B: Where are you from?
I live in … City.
B: Oh, thank you very much for coming here.
A: What do you recommend as a souvenir from your hometown?
… City is full of nature, so I recommend vegetables and the meat of wild bear.
(wild boar と言うつもりが間違えてしまった)
B: Wild bear!?
I’m sorry, wild boar.
B: Oh, I'm surprised to hear that.
B: Are there wild boars in your hometown?
B: I'll ask you some questions. What is the status of the imperial family?
In Japan the imperial family is thought to be a symbol of the country. In old days, the emperor was thought to be a deity. But during the World War II, the Japanese military government waged war in the name of the emperor. So there are still many Japanese who have strong feelings about the emperor. Now, the Japanese constitution stipulates that the emperor is a symbol of Japan.
B: How do you think they,… he and his wife feel about being regarded as a symbol? Because they are human beings.
Now they have the opportunity to talk and communicate with the general public. So even though they are thought to be a symbol, they have come to feel they are human beings.
B: What do you think about many people rejecting to pay NHK their subscription fees?
This is a serious problem. Many people do not want to pay money to NHK because an NHK employee used its money for private use. But most of the people pay money to NHK.
So it is unfair not to pay money. They had better pay money. And NHK has to make good TV programs to compensate for its conduct.
B: Do you think there is any alternative way to collect the fees?
Now, employees visit each house to collect the fees, but it is a waste of time.
In some homes, the viewer fee is deducted from their bank accounts.
Collecting money by visiting homes is really wasteful.
It is difficult to find a good idea. But ….
B: Yes it is difficult to find a good idea. OK, that’s all for the questions. Thank you.
Thank you very much.
Thank you very much.
