Japan consists of four major islands such as Honshu, Hokkaido, Shikoku and Kyushu. Also, Japan has a lot of famous mountains. Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain. In Kyushu, Mt. Aso is famous for its large caldera. Japanese rivers are relatively short and have rapid currents. Shinano River is the longest. Tone River is the second. In addition to rivers, there are many famous lakes, for example, Lake Biwa in Shiga and Lake Kasumigaura in Ibaraki.

A: Very good. (アイコンタクトから、感触のよさを感じて、以後はリラックスして答えられそう)Next Japanese people eat rice a lot. Where is the most famous rice production place?


Niigata prefecture is the most famous. It is northwest of Honshu. It takes 2 hours from Tokyo by Shinkansen or “the Bullet Train”. Niigata’s climate, land and water are suitable for rice production. Additionally, people in Niigata tend to be patient and rice production requires the patience of farmers.

A: Ok. What is the national sport in Japan?
Sumo is the national sport in Japan. Sumo is a traditional Japanese-style of wrestling. Two sumo wrestlers are matched against one another in a ring. The match is decided when one wrestler is pushed out of the ring, or any part of his body except the soles of his feet touches the ground. Each year there are six sumo tournaments in Japan. They are held in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kyushu.
(ここは三百選どおりに答えた)

A: Could you tell me about the most famous Japanese castle?

I think Himeji castle is one of the most famous castles in Japan because it is designated as the World Heritage site.
Personally, I like Nijo Castle in Kyoto.

A: Why do you like Nijo Castle?

I like the castle because of its garden called”Seiryu-en”. The garden has a large pond with three islands and features more than 1000 carefully arranged stones, pine trees and two tea houses.
Also it is the place where the restoration of the Imperial Rule was held. So, it is historic.

A: Good. Where is the famous corridor which has famous buildings in Japan?

Kyoto has a lot of famous corridors. They were built during the Heian period to imitate the then Chinese Imperial city. The corridors are wide and there are many famous temples and shrines surrounded by them.

A: I have a daughter. If she has a cold, what should I do?

You should go to a drug store. However, if her condition is serious, you should take her to the
Hospital to get her to receive appropriate medical treatment.

B: これからは日本語で質問します。あなたはどんな通訳ガイドになりたいですか?
(時間が余ってしまって質問してきたような感じがした)

私は旅行が趣味で海外は30カ国以上訪問しました。それぞれの国で英語の通訳ガイドにお世話になり、その深く知る国を知ることができました。また私は教員で、修学旅行や校外学習で生徒と京都・奈良・鎌倉などを訪れる機会も多くありました。私が通訳ガイドになったら、今度は恩返しのつもりで、私の視点で海外の人に日本のよさを紹介するするともに、日本の教育問題などもきちんと伝え、相互理解に勤めたいと願っています。

A: Thank you.

Thank you.

時事問題を予想していたので、日本語事象が中心だったので以外だった。
