Initially, Sugi Holdings acknowledged the fact of the inquiry to the city, but denied the content of the report that it did not request for convenience.[21]However, after that, he announced an apology comment on the company's official website, in which Mr. Akiko had an operation for lung cancer in the past, so the secretary made an inquiry to Nishio City Hall in consideration of the situation. He explained the circumstances, while Chairman Hirokazu also announced that he did not wish to be vaccinated because he had experienced anaphylactic shock in the past.[22]..However, the secretary said, "The chairman has a strong intention. I am looking forward to the inoculation."[23]And that the couple was heading to the inoculation site when the reservation was canceled.[24]There is a discrepancy between the claims of Sugi Holdings and Nishio City.
