Disappointing response from Tenri regarding Sister City Seosan
We received a response to our campaign and petition from the City of Tenri, in Japan, the English translation of which appears below.
You will be forgiven for thinking that the reply they gave makes little sense: it made no sense in the original Japanese text.
Yasue, our volunteer, translated it into English for us; but although their letter was unclear – what is clear is that the City of Tenri is unwilling to take any action to contact their South Korean Sister City, Seosan, regarding the illegal dog and cat meat industry that operates there.

(English translation of the letter)
Thank you for your opinion to Tenri city.
Our reply is as follows;
The recognition about the culture and the custom of other countries are varied.
We will value interchange with Seosan city in the global community with the variety while we think that we should deepen the friendship while respecting each other and make much of the balance with the consideration besides humanity.
