Do you think Japanese people are friendly to foreigners?
Why or why not?

Well, I think Japanese people are friendly to foreigners.
For example, when you take a subway in Nagoya, you will hear train announcements
not only in Japanese but also in English, Chinese, Korean and Spanish.
And a huge number of public signs and maps in both Japanese and English
are seen all over the country.
I think they are a kind of indication of Japanese people's friendly attitude toward foreigners.

What do you think about drunk people?

Well, I think nothing about drunk people if they are harmless.
But in fact, drunk people are often harmful.
Once I saw a deadly drunken man sleeping in a bus.
He suddenly woke up and asked the bus driver to let him get off.
The bus was still on the way to the next bus stop, but he was about to throw up.
I think they should know their own limits and stick to them.

Some students commute to college from home.
Other students, however, choose to commute from dormitories near the college.
Which option do you think is better?
State your opinion with details and give examples.

I think that commuting to college from home is better for two reasons.
Firstly, if you live at home during college, you can save your living expenses.
Room and board at college in Tokyo usually costs over one million yen per year.
By saving the money, commuter students can buy more academic books.
Secondly, staying home during college means you can get much support from your family members.
For example, you always have access to a well-stocked refrigerator
and your parents will help with your laundry and make you dinner.
Thanks to their support, you can easily concentrate on your schoolwork.

What do you think about living alone and living with someone?

Well, I think there are advantages and disadvantages to both living alone
and living with someone, but personally, I would rather live alone.
The main reason for this is that I can truly be myself without strain.
On the other hand, I must admit concerns about security when I live by myself.
If I fall into a case where I can do nothing alone or where I cannot call
for help and support, then that's the problem.
