Good afternoon

A.B.C : Good afternoon.

B : Please be seated.

Thank you.

A : Thank you for coming.

You are welcome.

B : What is your name and where do you live?

May name is... and I live in ....

A : Now I'll ask you some questions. In Japan, why are rents for
apartments so expensive? 

(正確には再現できず。 日本の家賃が高いのは何故かという趣旨)

Well, it's because land prices are very high in Japan. Especially in
central Tokyo, rents could cost 200,000 or 300,000 yen for a tiny
apartment.

(他にも発言したと思うが再現できず)
 
A : Do you prefer to buy a house or rent an apartment ?
   
I personally have a house in .... I bought it a long time ago. When I
was younger, I would not buy a house, I would rent an apartment because
my salary was not high. With the increased salary, I would buy a house.

(時制がおかしい。。)   

A : Buying a house is a good investment ?

Well, it depends. In the past, uh, in the bubble economy, yes, it was
a good investment. But now, after the bubble economy has collapsed, I
am not sure about that.

(正確ではないがこのような内容)

A : Next question.

(机に置かれた紙を見ながら).

The eating habits of young people in Japan are changing. What do you
think about this?

(一瞬質問の意味が分からず下記返答)

You mean eating while walking?

A : That's one example.

Well, eating while walking is considered bad manners in Japan. These
days, young people eat a lot of fast food like MacDonald's. Such food
is not healthy.

(他にも話したと思うが) 

A : Do you like their behavior?

No, generally, I don't like their behavior.

A : OK, another question.

(これも机に置かれた紙を見ながら)

A : What is 7-5-3 ?
  
(これはラッキー! 「300選」で覚えたものが出た。思い出しながら。。)

7-5-3 is a ceremony to pray for the health and growth of children.
Parents take their 3-year old boys and girls, 5 year-old ... 

(ここまで来て,どちらの性別か一瞬分からなくなり)
girls ... no, boys, and 7-year old girls to shrines to pray for their
growth and happiness.

A : Rental wear is very expensive, isn't it?

(貸衣装は高いですよね、という趣旨だったと記憶)。

Yes, I remember that when I took my daughter to a shrine. The rental
kimono cost around 20,000 to 30,000 yen.

A : Very expensive

Yes, but as a father of a child, I wanted her to be beautifully dressed
on the happy occasion. I didn't mind paying that sum.

(A,B ともうなずく)

A : The interview is over. Thank you.

Already finished?

A, B : Yes

Thank you.

大筋はこんな感じでした(他にも発言したと思いますが覚えていません)。
全体を通しての印象ですが、良かったと思われる点は、
幸い沈黙はなく手振りを交えながら大きな声で話せたこと及びアイコンタクトもできた
と思われること(面接官A,Bとも相槌をうってくれる場面が多かった。)
一方、反省点としては、文法(特に時制)の間違いが多かったのではと思われること。
皆さん仰る通りあっという間に終わった感じです。
試験そのものに対するコメントですが、受験生によって質問内容(&一部その難易度)が異なり、
果たして公平な評価ができるのか、皆さんのレポートを見させて頂きあらためて
疑問に思った次第です。
