Well, I made some calls to Japan today, fully expecting the people on the other end to have heard the name MtGox. I was surprised to find that the people answering the phone had not really heard much about the MtGox debacle. Even the US Embassy in Japan, where I imagine there are no more than 50 or so people working, they hadn't heard of MtGox. So, I realized that many people have spent loads of time on this board, but haven't taken 5 minutes to call a Japanese phone number.

If you want to be heard, you need to speak up. Just remember, the difference between MtGox and Bitcoin when making your calls. We don't need to damage Bitcoin and crypto currency any further than it already has been. We can do our best to flush out the waste though...feel free to make some noise. Maybe one call or one email a day.

Hi Renee,

It looks like it is possible that banks were withholding or, at least delaying wire transfers, so you may be in luck. I suggest investigating this group:

You might want to consider contacting  Mineyuki Fukuda. He is a member of parliament from Prime Minister Abe's ruling Liberal Democratic Party involved with a committee that is studying the bitcoin ecosystem. They plan to determine what, if anything, can be done to help Mt. Gox's depositors.

Other names of importance are Economic and fiscal policy minister Akira Amari as well as Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida. These two officials have been working on a growth strategy to double Japan's direct investment by foreign companies and investors to 35 trillion yen by 2020. Obviously, what happened to Mt. Gox's depositors does not help enhance Japan's reputation as an investment destination of choice for foreign investors. The government wants to get the word out that Japan is a safe destination for investors, and that the government intends to support foreign direct investment.

People in the government already realize that the Mt. Gox situation can be flipped from a P.R. liability for Japan into an asset. All that it will take is having the courage to step up and take some leadership. A consensus for action must build among government and business leaders. However, the motivation is definitely there to help make Mt. Gox's investors whole.

Expect whatever is finally done to be a unique Japanese resolution to the issue fitting in with the government's game plan for the bitcoin ecosystem as well as their strategy to attract foreign direct investment.

Great ideas Apricot. You can send an email right here:

https://www.kantei.go.jp/foreign/forms/comment_ssl.html

Here is mine:

To Whom It May Concern:

It appears as though DEPOSITOR assets, including fiat currency and Bitcoin are lost, stolen, or seized from MtGox, and there are many people throughout the world watching and waiting to see what the Japanese Government does about the situation. Many innocent people have been substantially hurt by the event and we are all observing with keen eyes and ears to see what will become of this case. We applaud the Japanese government for staying out of what may essentially be a civil case, but at the same time we hope that the proper authorities have examined the situation - at least at a high level - to confirm that there is no fraud. Money and Bitcoin do not just disappear. Both are easily traceable. Crypto currency is here to stay and if Japan wishes to present itself as a strong partner of crypto currency investments, I hope that it does its best to air the truth in this case.

Subject: Resolving Mt. Gox is important to Japan

To Whom it May Concern:

Thank you for your time and attention in reading this message. I would like to encourage representatives of the Japanese Government to meet with a delegation of depositors that are owed bitcoins and cash by Mt. Gox.

While I'm certain there are people within the government who are quite aware of the issue, investors around the world are confused and frustrated by the bankruptcy proceedings in Tokyo, and would sincerely appreciate some high level oversight. There is great concern about possible fraud, and considerable unease--leading many investors to lose some interest in Japan as an investment destination.
