Despite a long cultural history of whaling in Japan, there has been no legal commercial fishing by the country done since the 1980s. And while once a common source of protein, changing tastes by Japanese consumers and negative stigma of whaling have dwindled demand for Japan’s stockpile of whale meat. Recently, however, Japan announced it will return to commercial whaling First, we heard the ordinary Japanese people’s perception of whale meat and the whaling industry. We then visit one of the few remaining whale meat restaurants in Tokyo to see how perception and legal changes have affected business.
Our vision is to build a lasting grassroots movement of young people from every country to report on real social and cultural issues. We believe having meaningful discussions with people with different opinions is extremely important. We also believe that any ordinary person can deliver real news and commentary. Through our original and in-depth interviews of real people, we will challenge you – the global youth – to think critically and challenge various cultural and social issues.
