Recently over 500 people took part in an event hosted by The society to Preserve the Tradition of Whale Eating. Presumably in a bid to maintain the traditional way of eating whale. Whatever that may be. In a curry? Or perhaps with pasta?
Yet despite the ban on whale hunting, the government affiliated Japanese research institute catches hundreds of whales every year as part of its research program.
To research the best sized steaks for take-away plastic containers perchance?
