(ノックして)
A: Come in.

Hello.
A: Please put your bag on the table over there.(入ってすぐ左手の壁際に長机が置いてありました)
May I take my coat off?
A: Sure. Please be seated here.

Thank you.
A: OK. Please tell us your name.

My name is .......... .
A: Where are you from?

I'm from .......... City, .......... Prefecture.
A: How did you come here today?

I came here yesterday by bus.
A: Where did you stay last night?

I stayed near .........., at ..........., a Japanese private inn.
A: Why did you take this test? (サンプルでは大抵最後だった質問がいきなり来たので少しあわててしまいました)

I'd like to be a tour guide that can tell foreign guest about Japanese way of thinking.
(試験官A・Bとも手元の紙をぱらぱらとめくって少し間があく)
A: Sorry, we are looking for the questions...

Because I'm the first one of this time.(と応えた)
A: That's right...OK, this should be an easy start for you. Where would you recommend going if I'm travelling in Japan?

I'll recommend going to .......... since I'm originally from .......... . .......... Shrine is built a little off from the sea, and it is very beautiful as it looks like it's floating on the sea. (これだと海から少し離れている感じになるし、もっと地元らしさを発揮すべきでした。あなごやかきのグルメ情報、少し離れて岩国の錦帯橋にも触れれば良かったと後で思いました)
B: Could you tell me the types of Buddhist statues?

Buddhist statue?
B: Yes, tell me the kinds of Buddhist statue you can see in Japan.

Well, first, they are in different size. Big ones are like you can see in Nara and Kamakura, and there are in different positions. Some are upright, some lay down.(仏像の種類を釈迦像のみの種類と勘違いしていました。それでも姿勢の違いの理由など話せばもう少しましだったかもしれません)
A: Has Japan had female ruler in the history?
Yes. There were some female rulers in Japan.
A: When was it?

One of them was around 700A.D.(思い浮かべていたのは推古天皇でしたが、時代が違う、と言いながら思いました。卑弥呼や、他の女性天皇についても説明すべきでしたが、時代や名前などがとっさに出なかったので口をつぐんでしまいました)
A: OK. Then, Please tell me what should I do if earthquake comes?

First, don't be panic. Stay calm and escape under something big like a table to stay away from being hit by falling things.
A: If you are guiding a group of tourist, where would you take them in Kyoto?

I'd like to take them to Kiyomizu temple and Kinkakuji as I went yesterday.
A: Oh, that's good. I haven't seen anywhere since I came here this morning.

Oh, you got to see them. They are so beautiful. I hope you have time to look around after this.(実は今回初めて錦市場を歩き、楽しかったのですが、そういうことがとっさに出てこなくて話せませんでした)
A: Next, please tell me, what's enka?

Inka?(と、聞こえました。演歌か?と思ったものの、確認のために聞き返しました)
A: Yes, enka, a music.
Ah, it's a Japanese ballad that originally came from Korea. Many of them are love song, and it often sing about the family and hometown.
A: Do you like it?

(嫌いと言ってはいけないと思ったので)Yes, I like some of them.
B: When you are taking the tourists to a Japanese restaurant, what would you check?

Well, first, I'll ask the guests if there are any foods they can't eat. I also would ask if they are used to use chopstick or not. About the restaurant, I would check if you need to take your shoes off or not.
B: You are taking a group of tourist to a temple, it will close at 5 o'clock, but your bus is in traffic jam and you won't be able to make it. It is like 4:20 and you are running out of time. What will you do?

Hmm, if my guest is OK, I might find another temple that is closer and still open. Or, I'll try to call the temple and ask if they can extend the time for us.
A: OK. I think that's enough. Thank you for coming.

It was very nice talking with you. Thank you.
(終わった直後にも思いましたが、書いてみて改めて日本事象の説明について不勉強だし、丁寧な説明をしていないと思いました。もっと親切で説明好きであらねばならないと感じます。特に仏像(や仏教)に関して勉強が足りないと思います。日本人女性の方はかなり具体的な実務での対応能力を確認してきたと思います)
