Well,(少し間をおく。知らないと言えばよかったのだが)And they are different in their ages.

Enka is a popular Japanese songs, and very popular among elderly people. The main themes are love, parting, family, and so on. And it is sympathetic(sentimentalと言うべきだったが間違えた).

I don't like it very much.
A:「私ぐらいの年齢向きですね?」のようなことを言い、1人で爆笑。
A: Why do you want to be a tour guide?

Because I am really interested in foreign cultures and histories, so I want to introduce them.
A: That's a good reason.

To be a hospitable person with a love for the culture and history of Japan is very important.

Yes. I think so. (またAが爆笑)

A colored leaf? (Aが爆笑)I don't know the English name.
But I know them on the table. It is Japanese maple and Cherry tree.
A: Excellent. Please tell me about ginkgo?
It is planted along streets, and in this season, the leaves turn to yellow so they are very beautiful.
A: How about ginkgo nuts?
It smells badly, but we use it for dishes such as chawanmushi. It's like Western pudding.
A: Pudding? Pudding is sweet!
Chawanmushi is seasoned with soy sauce and a little bit sugar, and it contains chicken, rice cake, and mushrooms.
A: OK. I see. Thank you very much.
Thank you very much.
「どうもありがとうございました」と一礼し、荷物を持ってから「失礼します」と言って退出。
感想:(2回目の受験です)去年のように答えにつまることがほとんどなく、質問も聞き取りやすくて雰囲気もよかったのですが、試験官が急に爆笑するので不安になりました。ガイドについて答えを1つしか考えていなかったので、両方の答えの内容がかぶってしまいました。
