    The key signature is that of G major.

    Is this a trick question?

    At a glance and without the whole piece, it looks to be E Aeolian (natural minor, E is tonic, I.)
    The naturals you see mid-page are when it goes to A = IV (very temporary). When it returns to E aeolian a few bars later, the F-sharps are restored.

    Ya, the key signature has 1 sharp which is either G major or e minor and it is definitely not G major.

    So we're agreed that the key signature is G major/E minor/A Dorian/etc. (all the same signature), but the piece itself is in E minor.

    I think we need to see the whole piece to decide if G major, E minor,...

    The key signature is in Japanese. I can't read it.
