How should we reply?
Note: I visited the reply form URL and found it is written
in Japanese. Another note is that maximum length of "TITLE"

carefully selects 5000 web sites in Japan which we recommend
people to visit, and introduces the top page or main menu

introducing your excellent web page.
We would like you to access the URL written below and
