A: Good afternoon. Please sit down.

Thank you.

B: May I have your name?

My name is ….

B:Where are you from?

I’m from ….

A: I’ll ask you some questions.

Sure.

A: What do you think about the idea of raising the consumption tax?

I think it’s necessary. Our society is aging rapidly and we have the problem of the declining birth rate.
It’s not so easy to reduce pension payments to the elderly people, and it’s also not easy to increase payments for the young people. So the revenue from the consumption tax should be used especially for the child care system and the young generation.

A: Many people buy bottled water these days instead of drinking tap water. What do you think about this?
I think people pay more attention to the taste of the water and prefer to buy the water. Personally, I don’t buy water because I trust the public utility office. But it is good that people can buy water anytime or anywhere.

A: Tell me about futon.

Futon is a thick quilt or mattress used in a Japanese-style room. They are used as bedding at night and are put away in the closet in the morning. It’s a necessary item in Japanese rooms.

A: Tell me about the genkan.
The genkan is a small hallway at the entrance of a Japanese house. We take off our shoes there and go into the home.

A: Why do Japanese take off their shoes in the house?

I think Japanese houses are basically small, so in order to use them effectively, we divide the space between the outside and the inside.

A: What do you think about the status of the imperial family today?
The imperial family is facing the problem of whether to have an empress, but a survey shows most people see no problem in having a female at the head of the throne. And recently, a princess married a commoner, and this event has made the relationship between the imperial family and the common people closer.

A: Thank you for coming today.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity.
