A: Please put your jacket and bag on the chair.(手でドアの近くの椅子を示しながら。)
Thank you.(コートとかばんを椅子に置く。)
A: Please be seated.
Thank you.
B: First, what is your name?
My name is .........
B: And where do you live?
I live in Uzumasa, Kyoto.
B: EIGAMURA in Uzumasa is famous.
A: Tell me about EIGAMURA.
EIGAMURA is a movie studio like the Universal Studio. It is nice that the foreign tourists visit there because you can take photos with samurai and people in the Edo period. I have been there several times with foreign friends and they were very happy.
B: It is nice you have a place like that near your house.
Yes, it's just walking distance.
A: Tell me about the types of Buddha statues.
There are several types of Buddha statues.
B: Koryuji in Uzumasa has famous Buddha statue. Please explain it.(質問が難しいので助け舟を出してくれたものと思われる。)
MIROKUBOSATSU in Koryuji temple is the first national treasure. (試験官Bニコとうなづく。)Bosatsu is Buddha seeking enlightenment. I like it very much because it has very graceful and peaceful facial expression. It is a statue of Buddha before enlightenment. You can distinguish the type of Buddha statue by its name: Nyorai, after enlightenment, and Bosatsu before enlightenment.
A: O.K. What is the difference between Maiko and Geiko.
Maiko and Geiko are both female entertainers in kimono. They treat the guests by dancing and talking nicely. In general Maiko is younger than Geiko. Maiko is about 15 to 20 years old and Geiko is elder.
A: What is Enka?
Enka is a Japanese popular song generally with rather sad melody. I think it is particularly popular among elderly people. My mother and aunt like Enka very much.
A: Why do you think Enka is popular among the elderly people?
(答えに困りつつも一生懸命説明する。)Of course it's nice to listen to joyful songs, but I think, after having the life history with sometimes difficult times and happy times, the emotional style of Enka touches in particular the heart of the elderly people.
A: I see.(苦労してるわねえという感じで微笑みながら。)
A: Thank you. What the guide should do when the earthquake takes place.
The first thing that the guide should do is to calm down the tourists. In general, in other countries there are little earthquakes so that the foreign tourists may be very frightened. As the earthquake will be over in a few minutes at most, the first thing that the guide should do is to tell them "You are O.K. Please keep your head!"
A: Now you can leave. Thank you.
Thank you very much, Mesdames. It has been nice talking with you.
(試験官AとBアイコンタクトして微笑みあっていた。)
