B: Hello. What’s your name?

My name is ….

B: Where did you come from?

I came from Sagamihara city, Kanagawa.

A: Why are so many Japanese women in their thirties remain single?

I think it’s because many of them have their own careers. Getting married and having children put obstacles in the way of their promotion.

A: But you know many women in U.S. with careers get married and have children.

Well, I think in Japan, we cannot expect much help from our husbands.(自分の経験でしゃべってしまった)I have three children and I’m working…It’s very difficult without my husband’s help. Fortunately, I live with my mother who helps me a lot. Besides, it’s very difficult to find a good nursery and day-care center for children.

A: Oh! You’re very lucky. Your mother must be your live saver.

Oh, yes. That’s true.(皆笑い、場がとても和みました)

A: What is takoage?

It is kite-flying. It used to be popular among young children as an activity during the New Year holidays. These days, however, it is not popular especially around Tokyo area. There is not enough space.

A: What’s the typical design on kite?

Well there are images of kabuki actors and also a figure made from origami papers.
(ここでやっこさんのことを言いたかったが、とっさに出てこず、B の方はきょとんとした顔をされていた。それでもAの方は深くうなづいて下さいました)

A: Thank you. That’s all.(笑顔)

B:お疲れ様でした(笑顔)

Cの方が気になり、eye contact もとろうとしましたが、一度も目が合わず、不安になりました。B、Aの方の笑顔に助けられた面接でした。
