Excuse me. Can I take a seat?(すこし緊張していた。)
A: Sure. Please take a seat.
Thank you.
B: Are you nervous?
Yes, I am a little nervous. But I feel OK now.(すこし、落ち着いた感じがした。)
B: Where do you live?
I live in ... prefecture, ... city, ... town which is famous for ... festival which is held from September 1st to 3rd .(住所の説明順番を入れ替えて、最後に...町を持ってきて、...盆の説明をしたが、...には、関心がなかったようだ)
B: ... prefecture? That is too far.(...は、遠いと感じているようだ)
Yes, it takes 4 hours and half to get here.
A: OK. First question. When were the first summer Olympics held in Japan?
You mean the first summer Olympics in Japan? Right? That means normal Olympics? (東京オリンピックの年が思い出せるかと思い、時間稼ぎをいれたが、思い出せなかった。)
A: Yes, normal Olympics.
Actually I forget the exact year. But I think they were held when I was an elementary school child.(正直に思い出せないと話して、そのかわり、小学校のときにオリンピックの思いでがあることを話した。)
A: You remember that date?
Yes, I watched the Olympics on TV in those days.
A: What effect did the Olympics have on Japan?
It contributed greatly to the Japanese economy. Actually, many buildings were constructed, and the railway such as bullet train and highway system were set up. (オリンピックの経済効果について説明した)
A: Let me change the subject. Next topics are ONSEN. How can I enter ONSEN? Can I enter ONSEN wearing a swim suit?
No, you must take off all the clothes. Yes, you must be naked to enter ONSEN. This is recommended for the hygienic reason.
A: If I have a small butterfly tattoo, can I enter the ONSEN?
You may be told negative word to enter the ONSEN by the administrator. But if you hide your spot by the towel or so, you may be OK to enter ONSEN.
A: That is interesting. OK. Next question is about autumn leaves. What is this? (イチョウの葉っぱを見せていた)
That is a maple leaf.(あがっていて、口から間違った単語が出てしまった。部屋の温度が高く、のどが渇いて、しゃべりにくい感じがし始めた。)
A: Really? Then what is this? This is a maple. Right?
Sorry, that is a ginkgo leaf.
A: Yes, this is ginkgo. Please tell us about ginkgo.
Nuts of ginkgo can be the food. Collect them under the ginkgo trees, and boil them and put salt slightly, and then eat. Japanese like them.(イチョウを見たら、小さいころ、母親からイチョウの実を食べさせてもらったことを思い出し、イチョウの実は食べられることを話した。)
A: Well. Boil them, and eat them. That is interesting.
A: Finally, let me ask. How long do you take to be tour guide?

Actually about 5 years ago, I took this examination before I went to Thailand on business. But at that time, I failed to pass. After I came back from Thailand, it took me one year to study and luckily I passed the first examination, so I honestly come to attend this interview.
A: What is the most important thing to be tour guide?
I think hospitality and enthusiasm to be grass root diplomat and explain things Japanese and Japanese way of thinking and manners and culture to foreigners.
A: Thank you.
Thank you very much.
