A, B： Good morning.
B： May I ask your name?
Yes, may name is ….
B： Where do you live?
I live in ….
A： I heard … is a very interesting place. Could you tell me about it a little?
Yes. … has a lot of historical places such as the large statue of Buddha
and Tsuruoka Hachimangu Shrine.
A： I heard the changing colors of the autumn leaves are very beautiful. When does that happen? (多分、いつどんな木の葉が紅葉するのかと言っていた気がするが、間違えて、時期について答えてしまったかも。)
In fall, all the leaves change colors. I heard this year the end of November till the beginning of December is the best time to see the view in Kamakura, Kyoto or wherever. Originally I am from …， and I am going back next weekend. I am so excited.
A： Oh, I love ….
I am glad to hear that. I always miss my hometown.
A： Could you tell me about the status of the imperial family?
The imperial family doesn’t have any political power. They are a symbol of Japan. They welcome a lot of people from other countries and make great efforts at making good relationships with them.
A： The emperor’s birthday is a holiday. What do people do that day?
On that day, the imperial family will show themselves on the veranda of the Imperial Palace and greet people waving their hands. In our daily lives, we don’t get the chance to see them directly. I have never seen them. So people who want to see them should go to the Imperial Palace that day.（あまり覚えていませんが、１２月２３日といわなかった気がします,後悔。）
A： What do you think about the issue concerning the NHK viewer fees?
One thing we have to pay attention to is that we are not really interested in Japanese history itself, or what’s going on in the world today. I think it is NHK that must broadcast programs on such serious topics. Also, they should start making commercials so that as much as 50 percent of their budget comes from commercials. This way, they can cut the viewer fees by half.
A： Oh that’s an interesting idea.
“Hachimaki” is a headband. People wear it at sport festivals, demonstrations,
and some campaigns in order to show their determination. It can also be
a symbol of teamwork to win a race or an election.
A： When do you think you’ll wear a “hachimaki” soon, for Christmas or New Year’s?(一番直近でいつつかうつもりか？といった質問)
I don’t think I will have a chance to use it. Oh! Now, I remember, right before this guide examination, my school provided “hachimaki” for us to pray for our success. (あまりにいうことがなかったので、みたいなことを作って言いました。大学受験のことを思い出したので。はちまきの色や、素材について言及しなかったことが悔やまれます。）
A： That’s all. Thank you very much.
Thank you for this opportunity.
A： Have a good day.
