C: Hello, Please sit down.

Hello, thank you.

C: Please tell us your name and where you are from.

My name is ---------. I’m from Tokai, Ibaraki Prefecture.

A: I’m going to ask you some questions.

OK.

A: Where would you take foreign visitors so that they can experience something Japanese?

I would take the foreign guests to Kyoto. Kyoto has been the site of the Imperial Court for over 1,200 years. It has many tourist attractions. For example, Heian-Jingu shrine and Kinkaku-Ji temple.
The latter is well known in the west as the Golden Pavilion.

A: OK. What is something good to eat in Kyoto?

I would recommend foreign guests to try the "yatsuhashi".

A: Hum… It’s new to me.

Is it? "Yatsuhashi" is a Japanese sweet. It’s like a crepe. The shape is triangle and it’s this big

(と、手で示す)

and there are sweet beans inside. It’s covered with cinnamon.

A: What do you think about the decline of the birth rate in Japan?

I’m very concerned about this issue. I know many women who want to have children but can’t. I think we should do something to prevent, I meant, to stop this trend. I think we should create a better environment for women, such as flexible hours, more maternity leave …

A: Hum…How long can you take for maternity leave?

It depends on the company you work for. One of my co-workers has just taken maternity leave and she’ll be back at work in six months.

A: Huh.

(いいですね、という表情。6ヶ月とは育児休暇も含めての意味だったが、言いそびれる。)

OK, please tell me what “donburi” is. I don’t know what it is.

Oh, you haven’t tried? "Donburi" is a Japanese dish. There is rice topped with many ingredients such as grilled eel, eggs …

A: Can I try "donburi" at any Japanese restaurant?

No, I don’t think so. Some restaurants specialize in noodles or expensive food….

(具体的にどこで食べられるかを言うべきだったが、思いつかなかった)

A: What is your favorite "donburi"?

As I said, I like “unadon”.

A: Why?

Because it’s nutritious and I like teriyaki sauce.

(皆笑う)

Teriyaki-Sauce is made from sugar, sake and soy sauce.

A: Thank you.

(と言われてもまだ座っている)

A: Thank you.

Oh, it’s finished? Thank you for taking your time.

(おじぎをしながら)

(ドアが開かず、まごまごしていると)

B: Push.

Ah, push, it’s heavy.

(また、おじぎして出る)
