In my opinion the Japanese Population is living in a out dated time.
They were raised on generations of history dating back even before the 1800's that they still believe at heart is acceptable to do these things that they do.
It may be a antique way of life....But for one of the most Technologically Advanced countries they clearly know and understand that what they are doing not only angers the entire world just like Faroe Island does,
But they also clearly exhibit the need to continuously LIE to us.
They claim research yet I myself downloaded a PDF from the Institute of Cetacean Research that states clearly they will anonymously send a price list for small cut whale meat...
Now I can only ask this in stating that....
What givers them the right and authority to blatantly lie to the entire world and they treat us Whale and Aquatic Warriors like were the bad guys....
We state clearly what our intent is,
We clearly state we will not FALTER, So How are we the monsters?
We aren't the nation lying to the world so we can have a rare delicacy THAT IS NOT EVEN MEANT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.
They are cruel to these creatures and I honestly believe that they are even show signs of racism to anyone that's not Japanese....
They clearly do this mocking and laughing from the decks of their ships...
Why are we not trying to determine if there are alternative motives for them to continue to treat these animals and us Activists in this manner.
Its asinine to believe these lies any longer....If its not a racist motive,
Then what else could it be? Sport? To anger the world intentionally?
To show the world that they believe they have the right to commit any immoral crime? None of that really even matters...
WHAT MATTERS IS THAT THEY JUST NEED TO STOP RIGHT NOW...
NO MORE...JAPAN YOUVE SHOWED US HOW HEARTLESS AND CRUEL YOU ARE....
ISNT THAT ENOUGH? WHY DO YOU NOT WANT YOUR KIDS TO ENJOY THE WONDERS OF THE EARTH????
MAKES NO SENSE....CLEARLY
TOU MAKE MORE THEN ENOUGH MONEY OTHER WAYS AND JAPAN YOU ALREADY HAVE A FAT BANK ACCOUNT SO WHY ARE YOU CONTINUOSLY MURDERING MY FRIENDS FOR A DOLLAR.
I have the answer for that...
You are a cruel and rude continent that holds no concern for what or who you hurt....
And I will spend every dying breath fighting you until your doors are closed for good and your all in a worse spot in life then your bank accounts allow you to be now.
GOD SAVE THE AQUATIC FRIENDS WE FIGHT SO HARD TO PROTECT...
FOR THE OCEANS AND ITS INHABITANTS...
Thank you for allowing me to vent.
Harsh as it may have sounded that is what lies in my heart. Truly heartbroken

Me? I LOVE JAPAN
I think it is a tradition,
not long acquire that must adapt to modern times,
it is not healthy or ethical nor environmentally correct to continue to do this hunts…
I much admire japanese culture and think the best of it,
I could LIVE in japan,
my japanese friends are so excellent people, respectful, disciplined,
so I think once you people get started in putting an end to this horrors, they are meant to stop,
it is just a matter of getting people started within Japan.
Japanese need no help to get things done within japan and japanese matters....
I hope mypoint of vierw comes out well across, you see, I do admire much japanes culture, I had a friend who was a diplomat there for over 8 years and when I was invited IT WAS A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE!!! I do believe the world has much to learn form hapanes way of contemplating and simple way of solving problems
My opinion on the murdering of dolphins/whales etc. has always been it's wrong for years and years. They have the same brain/intelligence as us. they just live somewhere else:)
dulphins are one of the most beautiful creatures on this planet..so please stop killing them!!!
The Japanese dolphin drive hunt in Taiji has olny 45 years of history,
unlike the Japanese government has been claiming it as "the Japanese
Tradition". The method of killing dolphins are inhumane and there are
no concerning about the welfare of dolphins as they just kill or sell to
the aquariums and unwanted baby dolphins are dumped without their family
which means there's no hope for them to survive.
There has no law to protect the walfare of marine mamals in Japan!
It has to be more regulated by the international law.
We don't want such inhumane dolphin drive hunt as the Japanese
tradition nor culture. That's only continuing with the government's greed!
We must stop that!
Japanese want to stop the slaughter of dolphins in the opinion of their own in a loud without the criticism from abroad.
I want to continue to say about that.
freedom for all dolphins and whales around the world!!!
I did not know until recently
Please stop the dolphin hunting early.
almost Japanese people do not know the dolphin hunting .
I have not ever seen the person who eat dolphin ,
So,"dolphin hunting is culture" is a far-fetched.
I want you to stop about dolphin hunting also whaling immediately !
I think the dolphin hunting and whaling are unnecessary.
Head hunting is wrong, dolphins are living beings & should not be consumed nor herded into captive slavery in circus world. All ceteceans are father ocean's most intelligent species & we as the the most intelligent bipedal species on mother earth should know better in shared wisdom not to be predatory to any endangered indicator species.
I want you to stop soon!
I'm feeling the nuisance by
the eating dolphins is said the Japanese culture.
I saw photos, those were
dolphin mother was killed and
the dolphin baby thrown away in Taiji.
I feel that it is cruel hunting with no morals.
In a disguised culture,
they sell, such as aquarium .
Are being abolished the aquarium dolphin and whales zoo currently in developed countries of the world,
I've heard exhibition of small whales and dolphins as being obsolete in 12 countries EU countries, including the United Kingdom.
The show of whale and dolphin in children at the show of the Marine Park and Aquarium is the wrong education.
Please Stop the dolphins' slaughter and capture !
Dolphins are intelligent and sentient beings. They belong in the ocean, not in a concrete tank !
I love dolphins! What gives Japan The right to take these intelligent cetaceans out of their habitat and their families!!!!!
Dear Japan,please stop dolphin hunting,they are suppose to be free(-_-)
Absolutely NOT OK to kill or harm Dolphins or ANY animal!!!. All life is precious and have their own right to live out their lives. and we have no right to interfere or determine their fait.
Please abolished dolphin, whale hunting !!!!!
Dolphins are supposed to live wild and free, that is a right they are born with.
We humans DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO EITHER CAPTIVATE NOR KILL THEM !!!!
Jyotsna Ruth Ambríz Díaz (??????????)
Japanese people are cool dolphin hunting is NOT!
Please STOP and do NOT build a Dolphin Zoo in Taji. Even though I don't agree with it, it is standard practice here in Hawaii to offer both LAND and SEA (by boat) tours of dolphin and whale watching. I think you would make a lot more money with boat tours, swim tours (with wetsuit) and land based tours. Showing these beings in their natural environment is a better show than herding them into a cove, killing some, keeping others, then putting them in a torture tank until they die. DO TOURS! Also, if you want a Public Relations BOOM and LOTS and LOTS of good business, TELL THE WORLD TAIJI HAS CHANGED and will now conduct Tours instead of killing and trapping dolphins! Take people to see them.
I think it is time to start RESPECTING animals. Simply.
Pour une Belgique sans delphinarium
Great job ! Thanks for doing it ! Japanese dolphins need Japanese defenders !
STOP THE HUNTS!
IT IS A SAD TIME WHEN DOLPHINS & WHALES ARE STILL BEING HUNTED IN JAPAN, IT SERVES NO PURPOSE OTHER THAN THE CAPTIVITY INDUSTRY AND RISKS PUTTING THESE MAMMALS ON THE ENDANGERED LIST - PLS STOP BEFORE IT IS TO LATE!
Nothing is OK about Japan's dolphin -- or whale -- hunting.
This torture-murder is the shame of Japan.
Japan should not have been "honored" as the host of the 2020 Olympic Games In order to be honored, first behave with honor.
And now, to clean up for the Olympic Games,
Japan is murdering dogs and cats from the streets
Sending them to death as soon as they are picked up.
So Japan has added dog and cat torture-murder to dolphin and whale torture-murder.
Japan is a nation in shame and of shame.
A nation dirty with cruelty and the blood of our sibling species.
Japan dolphin hunting is not okay to take life unless you're a predator who needs the food to survive.
Also wild animals belong in the wild and should be viewed in their habitat.
Taiji dolphin hunts should stop.
They are cruel for the animals.
It shows no respect for the intelligent beings of the sea.
The practice is not a substainable one because the meat is contaminated.
This slaughter and capture has no place in a civilized country as Japan.
There are other options to bring income to Taiji, being a beautiful place. Please stop the drive hunts in Taiji.
Stop dolphin hunting.
This is not the kind of behaviour expected of one of, if not, the premier example of humane people in the east.
Like I said, there is no question Dolphins are very sentient beings.
With all we know about them, they are closer to humans in terms of feelings etc.
than any other animal.
Westerners look to Japan as head and shoulders above the rest of the Eastern cultures when it comes to morals and being modern.
Killing dolphins is not an acceptable practice anywhere but a third-world country.
Dolphin huting is not even tradition in culture,
It is a vicious abuse.
We must not disposal many outdated foods on supermarket and convenient store on every day.
we must not eat dolphins.
It is a arrogance thing.
Ending the hunt is for best Japan image globally.
I love Japan.
Dear Japan, Please end all dolphin hunting and slaughter! Please put into place safeguards for these beautiful animals! please do all that you can to Outlaw Dolfin hunting! thank you so much, J. Serrago USA
There is no need to eat dolphin,
We are enough eating and gluttony.
Children grow quickly and healthily without looking at the acrobatics of dolphins.
Thus the need for dolphin hunting is none.
I heard about Japanese kill & eat dolphins in 2005.
I didn't belive that while one week.
I felt it very bad joke...
But that was true...
It is not a story of distant past
That is now.
And that is do by Own country, Japanese.
I was recieved big damage by that
while one month, and still now.
This is not lie.
Japan may be the developed countries in economy ,
But,Japanese people are savage race.
Of course, this problem is a matter of Japanese
I and Japanese people should stop dolphin ,orcas,whale issue.
Your opinion & voices are effective for that!
