A:Please tell us your name and address?

My name is… I live in …

B: OK. I am going to ask you some questions about Japanese culture and tradition. There are many hot springs in Japan. Tell me about it.

Since Japan is a volcanic country, there are many hot springs.
The waters of hot springs have a good effect on your health.
It helps cure diseases, pains and aches. And we can feel relaxed when soaking in a hot spring.
Rotenburo or an open- air hot spring bath is especially nice. You can enjoy both relaxing in a hot spring and viewing the beautiful scenery around, though at first you may feel embarrassed when you become naked among others. (ここで一同うなずく)However,soon you’ll get accustomed to it.
If you have any chance, please go to a hot spring resort.
I visit a hot spring resort once or twice a month.

B: Which castle do you recommend in Japan?

Well, I recommend Himeji Castle. The castle is so beautiful that it is designated as the World Heritage site. Because of its appearance, Himeji Castle is also called “White Heron Castle”.
It is located in Hyogo prefecture. Do you know Hyogo?
(首を振る)
It is in the western part of Japan.
One of my friends is a tour guides specializing in Himeji Castle.
So, now I regret that I did not learn more about the castle from her.


(姫路城のことをもっと説明すべきだったのに関係のないガイドをしている友人のことをしゃべってしまったと反省)

B: Rice is the staple food in Japan. Tell me about the best rice.

The best rice is Koshihikari, produced in Niigata, northwestern part of Japan.

B: Why is it good?

There are some conditions to produce good rice, such as clean air, good quality water and fertile land. Niigata has these conditions. Therefore, rice produced in Niigata is very tasty. Koshihikari especially tastes good.

C: 最後に、日本語で質問をいたしますので、日本語で答えて下さい。あなたがガイドになった場合、何を気をつけて案内しますか?

はい。時間通り行程をこなすことはもちろんですが、日本に対してよい印象を持ってもらえるよう、ホスピタリティを持って日本文化、日本のよい所を紹介していきたいと思います。

C:ありがとうございました。

あまり難しい質問はされませんでしたが、的を得た答えもできませんでした。アイコンタクトと
微笑みは保てました。部屋を出てからよい答えが次々に浮かんできて反省点はたくさんあります。日本語の質問は予期してなかったのですが、もう少しやる気熱意を示すべきだったとこの点 反省しています。
