Do agencies detest contact by E-mail and if so why? I checked Erolin for a few agencies, checked their homepages and tried to find E-mail addresses or contact forms. I haven't checked that many so far, but in most cases I could not find this option (maybe my Japanese or random clicking ability are too poor). With one agency though I did find an address, but when I write they just stubbornly refer me to a phone number and refuse to answer questions. For various reasons I am not comfortable with calling. I do have a Japanese cell phone but it is kind of borrowed, I have very few opportunities to sneak away somewhere to call, and to be blunt I feel lost at making agreements over the phone.
