This is a very special edition of English News Weekly as this week we interviewed Senator Brian Taniguchi from Hawaii. Senator Taniguchi very kindly answered 10 questions written by Hiroshima University students about life in the beautiful island-chain of the Hawaiian Islands.

Senator Taniguchi is a 3rd Generation Japanese-Hawaiian whose family originally comes from Hiroshima Prefecture. Senator Taniguchi has been an elected official in Hawaii for 33 years. He is a member of the Hawaii-Hawaii Sister-State Organisation as well as representing the district of 11th District on Oahu Island.

On behalf of Hiroshima University's English News Weekly Podcast and I would like to express our deep gratitude to Senator Taniguchi for taking time to answer some of our student's questions.

今週はEnglish News Weeklyの特別編として、米国ハワイ州議会のブライアン・タニグチ上院議員(Senator Brian Taniguchi)へのインタビューをお届けします。訪日中のご多忙なスケジュールの中、タニグチ上院議員は、ハワイ諸島の美しい島々での暮らしについて、広島大学の学生が用意した10の質問に答えてくださいました。

タニグチ議員はハワイ生まれで、広島県出身のハワイ日系移民の三世です。氏はオアフ島第11選挙区代表の上院議員と同時に、広島県・ハワイ州交流企画委員会の委員もお務めになられています。

貴重なお時間をいただき、広島大学の学生からの質問にお答えくださいましたタニグチ上院議員に、広島大学のEnglish News Weekly Podcastより、心から御礼申し上げます。
