Why do Japanese people go fishing for whales?

 
For nearly 20 years after World War II, Japanese eat more whales than any other food.
 
Recently, a video published by the Australian government has shocked many readers. The video was collected from 2008 to 2012, with the scene of a Japanese research vessel heading into the South Australian waters and gradually exploiting gray whales.
 
 
The gray whales, up to 10 meters in length, were pinned down with explosives on their backs, pulled over long distances and then hoisted onto a boat, cutting into pieces. For a long time, the culture of eating Japanese whale meat has existed and is growing rapidly.

At the fair in mid-October every year, 30 restaurants in Ebisu prefecture, Tokyo, Japan, are packed. They came here to enjoy the delicious, fatty whale meat cooked by the chefs.
 
 
 
The elephant is associated with a cultural symbol that accompanies Ebisu. This is the god of luck and good luck to fishermen. For this reason, the festival in Ebisu district is sure to have a meat whale with the meaning "bring good luck to the distant."
 
Whales are endangered animals and, in many countries, catching fish is illegal. However, in Iceland, Norway and Japan, vessels are still able to obtain commercial fishing paper with this large economic value fish.
 
Previously, the Japanese used the term for fishing for dead whales for scientific research. Despite the video demonstrating the opposite, the Tokyo government seems to ignore this cruel action.

By the end of August 2015, a ship carrying more than 1,800 tonnes of rare whales arrived at the port of Osaka. This ship departs from Iceland and carries huge whales after several days of fishing at sea.
 
In Japanese culture, whales are a species that has been caught for centuries. Taiji fishing village in Wakayama Prefecture is considered to be the most famous place for whaling. Currently, Japan builds a large whale processing factory near Antarctica to process hundreds of whales at once.
 

 

One of the other explanations for Japanese whale eating habits was when World War II ended. As a loser, Japan has to find food supplies for tens of millions of people in the country. At this time, they converted two US oil tankers into "whale processing plants" at sea and went fishing across the oceans.

From the late 1940s to the mid-1960s, Japanese people ate more whale meat than any other food. It peaked in 1964, killing as many as 24,000 whales, mostly sperm whales and large fin whales.
 
Today, Japan imports whales from Australia, the United States or Iceland. Japanese people often pay for native fishing vessels, or scientific ships pretending to catch whales.
