B: Hello.

Hello.

B: Please sit down.

Thank you.

B: How are you?

I’m fine, thank you. And you?

B: We are all fine, thank you.
(といって残りの2人を見て微笑む)

I feel a little nervous.

A: Don’t worry. Easy questions.

A: Why do Japanese give gifts at weddings and〜?

In Japan, we have a gift-giving culture.
Gift-giving shows celebration,〜we celebrate them by giving gifts.

A: What kinds of things do you give at weddings?

I usually ask what they want.

A: Yes but usually〜what do you give?

Ah, porcelain. Or furniture? Oh, not big one, small furniture.
(ここでAがうなずく)

A: What do Japanese traditionally give at weddings?

Traditionally? At weddings?
I can’t come up with an idea.
(後で「お金」と言わせたかったのだと思いついた)

A: OK. Next question.
What do you think about pension system?

Pension system is complicated.
There are three categories. Self-employment and students,
(説明が長くなると思ってやめて)
Ah…what kind of pension they pay is different according to their
professions.
So when people change their jobs, they forget to change their pension
and don’t pay the pension premium.

A: How many people?

About 40%.

A: So many?
(BCの顔を見る)

Yes, and recently part-time workers can’t afford to pay pension
and small companies don’t pay the pension premium.
It is a problem.

A: Describe “Undo-Kai”

Ah… “Undo-Kai” is athletic meetings.
It is different according to schools,〜ages,
I mean, elementary schools, junior high, and senior high schools.
At elementary schools, all classmates show their dancing and invite
parents
and neighbors.
At junior high school, students don’t want their parents to come.

A: Oh, really even junior high level?

Yeah, so, so.
And at senior high schools, student themselves plan what they do.
Much more independent.

A: What is most popular〜at athletic meeting?

Relay.

A: How long〜?

You mean historically?

A: No, how long does it take?

Ten minutes?
Ah, no, maybe 30 minutes.
The first grader’s race takes 10 minutes and the second grader’s race
and third grader’s race〜maybe 30 minutes.

A: Time is up.

Oh! Thank you.

ABC: Thank you.
(ここでは3人とも皆愛想がよかった。)
