受験者( 16 ):女性
 

Hello,
A:Please put your bag on the table and please have a seat.
Thank you very much.
A:Please tell me your name. And where are you from?
My name is ............. I'm from ................ city.
B:Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you,too.
B:I'm interested in Japanese culture and I'm going ask you several questions.
Yes,please.
B:Are there any samurai today?
No, they aren't. Actually samurai warriors are not existent nowadays. In the feudal ages, samurai warriors came into power around the end of 12th century through the end of 19th century.
B:Are there any people except for samurai?
Well, besides samurai, there are many farmars and some people who had their own business such as selling kimono like the thing.
B:Where do you recommend that I visit in Japan during the winter?
If you are interested in skiing, I'd highly recommend you visit Hokkaido in terms of the quality of snow. Hokkaido has a lot of ski resorts as well as hot spring.
B:What is hot spring?
Well, Japan is a mountainous country and has a lot of volcanic chains so there are a lot of hot springs throughout Japan. Actually I'm from Gunma prefecture, I was born and grew up in Gunma and Gunma has many famous hot spring resorts such as Kusatsu, Manza and Ikaho. It's nice to soak into a hot spring while enjoying the beautiful scenary.
B:Are there any hot springs around Tokyo?
I would recommend that you visit Hakone. It's very convenient to go to Hakone from Shinjuku. It takes about one and a half hour by taking the express train. Hakone has a lot of hot springs, a beautiful lake and the beautiful scenery with the view of Mt.Fuji.
B:Oh, Mt.Fuji. How to get to Mt.Fuji?
You can get to the 5th station by car and you can climb up to the top of the mountain on foot.
B:I can 't drive a car. How should I do?
Well, you can go to Fuji....,(ええと・・という感じでつまづく)if I remember correctly, Fuji station by train and after that you take a public bus to the 5th station of Mt.Fuji. It's very nice to climb up Mt.Fuji early in the morning and you can enjoy the panoramic view from the top of the mountain.
B:Oh, it's very nice! Ok, then what is the biggest car company in Japan?
Excuse me, car...?(発音が聞き取りにくかった)
B:Yes, car (と言って、ハンドルを回すジェスチャーをして下さる)
Oh,I'm sorry. As you know Toyota is the most famous company in Japan. It is located in Aichi prefecture and it has a lot of factories there. The unemployment rate in Aichi prefecture is the lowest thanks to the big sale of Toyota, I think.
B:It's very good to find jobs there!
Yes, I think so.
B:Thank you very much. Well done.

(きっとみんなに言ってくださっているのではないかという感じですが、終始和やかな雰囲気で終わりました。ちなみに、Aの方は面接中一度も英語でも日本語でも質問をされず、じっと進行を見守り、私の受け答えの様子を見ていらっしゃる感じでした。)
Thank you very much.
