You should go to Osaka by Shinkansen super-express train. It takes about three hours from Tokyo. It's comfortable in the Shinkansen super-express train.

(感想)10:00〜10:10、入室から退室して時計を見たら、ちょうどこの時間でした。落ち着いて望もうと思っていましたが、やはり緊張してしまったようです。後から考えると、もっといろいろ説明するべきだったと後悔しきりです。改めて、自分の話したこと(正確には思い出せませんが)は、中学生レベルだと思います。自分のインタビューが終わった後、グループ全員が終わるまで待つのですが(私のグループは3人で、私が1番でした)、廊下にいると中の話がよく聞こえてきました。次の方は私と全く同じ質問でした。質問に対していろいろ長く説明していらしたので、時間が来てしまったようで、確かお風呂以降の質問はありませんでした。次の方の答え方を聞いていると、私のがあまりにも簡単で、説明に具体性がないと思い、がっくりきました。日本語での質問はありませんでした。
