Good morning. (こちらから明るい笑顔で言った)
A、B:Good morning.
B:Please have a seat

Thank you.
B:May I have your name and "full" address please?
My name is ……… My full address is ……(最近引っ越したので番地を誤って言い掛け、訂正した)
A:Suppose I am a tourist. I would like to go to Mt. Fuji. How should I go? Should I take a train, bus or...?
(う、結構聞きづらいな。と注意深く聞く姿勢を見せた)
To go to Mt. Fuji, I recommend you to take "Shinkansen" or nicknamed "Bullet Train". It takes about one and a half hours.
You can enjoy scenery from the Shinkansen, it's very beautiful.
B:Oh, bullet train. Should I exchange the train? Or, how should I go there?
(実際にきちんと到着するまでにはどうやっていったらいいか、細かく教えてほしいという主旨でした。はっきりどうやって行くか分からなかったので)

You go to the nearest station by bullet train then you can drive to the foot of Mt. Fuji, or by bus. If it's summer, July and August, you can climb Mt.Fuji.
B:Oh, you can climb only in July and August? How about other seasons?
Since it gets quite cold, you can only climb Mt.Fuji during July and August.
B:How would the temperature be?
It gets very cold, actually, it reaches almost 0 degree Celsius. Actually, I have climbed Mt.Fuji a couple of years ago and it was very cold close to the top.
You should bring a coat or warm jacket.
(実際は7合半で雨がひどくなり、足も怪我をして、引き返したため、頂上まで行ったことはないのですが、試験官Bがあまりにも興味津々でつっこんできたので、会話がそのまま続きました)
B: Wow, so the temperature in summer in Japan is almost 30 C and the top of the Mt is almost 0 C?
(確かに気温差は激しいが、やけに詳細につっこむなぁと思った)So do you really need warm thick jacket??
Actually, the foot of Mt Fuji (5合目と言いたかったが出てこず、麓の意の”Foot”を使用してしまった。)is pretty high from the sea level so the temperature at the foot of My Fuji is around 15 to 20 C.? Yes, it gets almost 0 C so you should prepare a warm jacket. (御互いジャケットのジェスチャーをした)
B: Is there any restrooms during the mountain to the top?
Yes, there are several rest houses actually, so you do not have to worry about it.
B: Is there any place to stay during the mountain to the top?
(ひえー!泊まった事ないよーと思いつつ)
Yes, there is a small lodge.
B: How many people can you stay there?
Well, about a hundred...
B: So, all the people sleep on the floor with crowded, right?
Yes, people sleep on floor or Tatami mat which is traditional Japanese mattress.
B: How far between you and another person when you sleep
(えー?隣の人とどれくらい離れているかなんて分からない)
It's not very far. Each person's bed is not divided by rooms so you sleep next to the person fairly close
B: What should I do if I want to go to the bathroom at midnight?? I might step on other people who are sleeping!
(えー夜中にトイレに行きたくなったら??そりゃー確かにちょっと気をつけなきゃいけないけど・・・)
Well. Please be careful not to step on other people (かなりジェスチャーと愛嬌をまぜた)
If I am there as a guide, I would take you to the bathroom, I mean, rest room.
B: Oh, are there any staffers at the place?
(係りの人はいるはずだと思い。) Yes, there should be some staff.
B: Is the place equipped with bathroom, or showroom?
Yes, I have not stayed there but it should be equipped with a rest, umm bath room (rest room と bath roomを回答時に混乱してしまったが言い直し),
I will check...
あまりにも細かく富士登山の事ばかりを試験官Aが聞くので、試験官Bは苦笑いをはじめて、
Aに無言の訴えをしていたがBは全く気づかず、まだ富士山登山を聞いてきた。
B: About what time should I get up to see the sunrise? Did you see when you went there?
To see a sunrise, you should be there around 5:00 am.
B: Oh, okay 5:00am. Did you see when you went there?
Unfortunately, I missed the sunrise. It was too late.
B: What is the top of the mountain like? Rocky?
(すごく細かく聞かれたので内心あせったが、それを表には出さず)
Yes, it's rocky and not very spacey.
B: 中がのぞける?Active volcanoで危なくないの?と聞かれ
You can't see the inside the mountain. The top of mountain is not very wide place.
B: Okay. Are the clouds above you or down you?
Um, the clouds are down you.
B: What could you see at the top of the mountain?
The whether wasn't very good but some natural scene could be seen.
B: Is the mountain considered religious?
Yes, it was once considered sacred, divine.
B: Is there any temples or shrine on the side of mountain?
(山の斜面にあるのか?とジェスチャーしていたので、しっかりした神社やお寺はないなぁと思い)
Well, there are not any temples or shrines on the side.
試験官Aが合図をし、
B: Okay, that's all for today
(え?本当にこの質問だけで終わり?と一瞬驚いたが)Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity.
と言って退出した。
<色々な日本事象勉強した割には、富士山登山の一点に集中した会話が行われ、内心驚いたが、質問に対しては何とか回答をする事ができました。私の例は例外だと思いますが、ガイドとなった現場では想定できる会話だったと思います。>
