Hiroshima landslide: update (4)

Finally, as a report earlier today states that the death toll has surpassed 70 and looks set to rise to 80-something, I have received a reply of sorts, set out below, from the Consulate General.

As indicated before, I also raised with the Consulate General a query regarding the renewal of my son’s fairly recently-expired British passport.  I will post more on this later, after receiving the response on the point as it is obviously a matter of some importance to my case and others.

Dear [name removed]

I have called the mother on Monday but no one answered the phone.

So I have sent her an e-mail instead on Monday and received her reply today on 26th.

In her e-mail she didn’t answer your question on whether Hugo kun is safe and said that she would like to receive an e-mail directly from you not via the Consulate as she is sincere in replying to your inquiry/question.

Please note that as of 25th August there is no British on the list of dead/missing persons.

I will reply to you separately on your passport questions.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
