As many of you know, we're homeless. We're working on fixing that situation, but facts being facts... we've got no home.

I contacted a housing agency here on Okinawa and told them of a property in which I was interested. I asked a few questions about it, and told them more of what we seek in a home so they can assist in helping us find it here.

At least they replied...
"この度はお問い合わせフォームよりお問い合わせ頂き、
まことにありがとうございました。

追って担当者よりご連絡したいと思います。

また、このメールに心当たりのない方は
お手数ですが下記連絡先までご連絡下さい。

So we took this and plugged it into our trusty translator and got this:
"This time you to inquire from inquiry form, thank you indeed. Chasing, we would like to communicate from the person in charge. In addition, the one which does not have per heart in this mail is the number of hands, but communication to ahead the below-mentioned communicating. Corporation central housing"
I think I'll call them and see if they speak English better than they type... or at least better than our translator.

A friend who spent time in Tokyo assures me that in a few months, you'll totally get the translation. ;->
