The correct answer is 1 but I do not understand it completely,based on what I know, the meaning is "When there's the existing machine,please get near to it" which does not make a lot of sense. Thank you for the help.

  • Totally off-topic but I guess you're using a textbook from good old days or printed outside Japan. That nostalgic typeface's nearly died out along with phototypesetters in Japan. Commented Dec 18, 2017 at 6:35

1 Answer 1


The correct answer is indeed 「きかい」 but this is not the 「きかい」 you are thinking of.

「機会{きかい}」 = "a chance" or "an opportunity"

「機械{きかい}」 = "a machine"

The correct answer, of course, is the former.

"If you have a chance to come to my area, by all means, please drop by."

「お寄{よ}り」 is the honorific noun form of the verb 「寄{よ}る」, which means "to drop by".
