Good morning. （めいっぱい笑顔で）
C： Good morning. How are you today?
Fine, thank you.
C： I see from your face because you are smiling.（一同和やかな雰囲気に）
C： Please tell us your name and where you’re from.
My name is ○○and I live in Fuchu-City.
B： Now I’m going to ask some questions to you.
What’s the difference between people in Tokyo and people in Osaka?
B： Sorry for asking a difficult question. What is the culture in Tokyo like?
Tokyo is the central city in Japan, so…（何を言いたいのかわからなくなる。Aがカリカリと鉛筆を動かしているのが気になる） People in Osaka have warmer attitude toward other people. （理由も言えず、この質問に関してはここで終了）
B： Next question. What do you think about Empresses?
I strongly agree with having an empress as the head of Japanese Imperial Family. Also it is said that about 70% of Japanese people support this idea.
B： OK. You mean many people agree with this idea.
B： Next, what do you think about Japanese working style these days?
I think Japanese working style is characterized by overtime working. （他にも答えようがあったと思うが、残業しか浮かばなかった） Due to the prolonged recession, companies want to reduce the number of employees in the restructuring, so the remaining workers have to work overtime.
B： How long is a working day in Japan?
People usually start working at 9:00a.m. and finish at 5:00p.m. I also work overtime everyday. （一同笑う）
B： Do you have a holiday?
Sundays are my holidays but I work on Saturdays.
B： Is it usual for Japanese employees to work on Saturdays?
No, I don’t think so. But I work (on Saturdays) because I work at a hospital as a secretary. We are open on Saturdays for out patient department, so I have to work. （皆うなずいて聞いてくれる）
B： OK, Thank you very much. That’s all for today.
