Hello! I’m very nice to meet you.
B:Hello! Me too!
A:Your name and address, please?
My name is ...., ....-ku, Tokyo, Japan.
B:I’m much interested in electronics. What’s the shop in Akihabara, do you recommend?
Well, there are many well-known electronic appliances’ shops in Akihabara, but I recommend you to visit small, not well-known shop near the street. Because such shops are dealing with high performance electronic appliances, so you visit there. But if you want to cheaper one, I recommend you to visit well-known electronic appliance’s shop such as Kojima etc.
B:I’m worried such shops employee can speak English, what do you think?
I don't think many employees in Akihabara are good at speaking English.
B:Oh, It’s annoying.
But don’t worry about it. In the specific field including electronics, even if they don't speak English fluently, we can exchange views enough. For example, I’m a research engineer, but in my immature English skill, I always exchange view on my research issue with foreign engineers. Don’t worry.
B:OK. There are many earthquakes in Japan. If I were struck by the earthquake, what should I do?
If you were in the large city such as Tokyo, Osaka others, you should go out the building, and not walk around there. The Self Defense Forces will rescue, so you should go to the public official space such as Showa women’s Univ. or Setagaya-park etc. and wait to the SDF or police arrive there.
B:OK. What the season for typhoon in Japan?
In the Honshu region, during July through October is the typhoon season, but in Okinawa, it is located in the sub tropical region, during May through November is the typhoon season. But Many of Japan’s typhoon season is during July through October.
A:Time is up!
Thank you very much. Good bye.
A,B:Thank you very much!
*今年の印象として、日本の文化を問うよりも、秋葉原で電化製品の買い物をするときのお勧め情報や地震、台風の時の対処の仕方といった実務的な質問が印象的でした。
(This year’s questions are practical such as electronic appliances shopping in Akihabara or how to deal with or avoid earthquake and typhoon. Usually, we are questioned for Japan’s culture or sightseeing spots, but this year’s question tendency is slightly different.)
