B： Please have a seat.
B： Please tell us your name.
My name is ….
B： Where do you live now?
I live in … City, Tokyo.
A： Why do so many people drink bottled water? （続けて、どうして水道の水は飲まないの？と聞かれた）
Because bottled water is easy to carry. People can drink it anywhere they want. And I think many people feel tap water is not so safe. (to drinkと続けるべきだったが、safeで止めてしまった)
A： There are many kinds of bottled water. （何か違いはあるの？と英語で聞かれた。）
I’m not sure… I can’t find any difference. But, some people say French
bottled water like Evian contains
A： All right. What do you think about Mr. Koizumi?
I have mixed feelings about him. He has been very successful in drawing people’s attention to politics. His crisp words are easy to understand for us. I think this is one of his good points. But on the other hand, I don’t think his diplomatic approach is appropriate. He hurts people’s feelings in Asian countries. I think he needs to pay more attention to Asian countries.
A： What about his visiting Yasukuni Shrine?
Personally, I think he should stop visiting to Yasukuni Shrine because his explanations about that issue is not acceptable by international standards.
A： What do you think about his appearance? His hairstyle …?
He is sometimes called Japan’s Richard Gear, and his hairstyle is said to be like a lion’s mane. I think he is good at drawing people’s attention.
A： And, what do you think about …（何とおっしゃったかよく聞き取れなかったが、Womenなんとかとおっしゃったので、小泉チルドレンの女性議員のことだと思った）
He use quite good tactics …（とつけ加えたら、）
A： Yes, he is quite clever（なんとかかんとか）And his son is an actor, isn’t he?
Yes he is an actor, but I haven’t seen him for a while. I think he is not so popular.
A： Yes, I haven’t seen him …. Well, OK next question is about Japan. What is obi?
Obi is a broad sash. It is used when people wear a kimono. Obi comes in various materials and men’s obi is different from women’s.
Yes, obi is difficult to tie. That is why Japanese people don’t wear kimonos so often.
B： OK, thank you.
B： Have a nice day.
