Minamata Disease in Tokyo Shoseki’s Social Studies Textbook for Grade 5 Volume 2.

I made this picture for refuting dolphin freaks and the Cove.

In Japan, all Japanese people learn Minamata Disease(a Japanese mercury poisoning incident) in public and private primary schools under the Japanese governmental course guidelines and even very poor people learn that fact. People of Taiji, too. So Japanese people couldn’t miss such a mercury poisoning by dolphin meats in Taiji if it were true.

* Tokyo Shoseki’s social study textbooks are about 50% of all. So it’s a standard textbook. And other publishers’ textbooks mention Minamata Disease.

I settled an archive of Whaling Library by Masaaki Ishida.

http://luna.pos.to/whale/ has extinguished since Sep. 2021. And I released Whaling Library Archive, its archive under Masaaki Ishida, the author’s permission. I asked someone if he knows Mr. Ishida directly and that person contacted Mr. Ishida. I thank that person.
The circumstance is like this.

Japan withdraws from International Whaling Commission

I found this news on Twitter. I saw someone shares Japan to withdraw from IWC to resume commercial whaling: sources as a post of Stop Sea Shepherd Violence! group on Facebook and I shared the same link on 20 Dec. 2018.

IWC is settled for sustainable whaling. It’s the aim of International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling.

Having decided to conclude a convention to provide for the proper conservation of whale stocks and thus make possible the orderly development of the whaling industry;

(Quote of International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling)

But they violate our rights of whaling itself against the contract. Anti-whaling countries including Australia and activists including Green Peace insult our scientific whaling for not scientific in spite of the fact that we show various scientific papers to IWC’s Scientific Committee. Anti-whaling foreigners don’t try to know the aim of IWC but they lie about the laws including the convention, about scientific facts including the estimates of whale populations. We cannot help that situation. So we, Japan need to withdraw from it.

I tried installing Dokuwiki.

Although my internet sites itself don’t have many viewers, I tried settling 反日問題・反捕鯨問題・その他, a Japanese wiki site with Dokuwiki for talking about anti-Japanese hate speech, about anti-whaling propaganda, and about the other issues discussed on Le Salon de Emmanuel Chanel, my forum.

You can edit the wiki contents by registering an account on the forum.

I ate whale meat in a restaurant. And I took some pictures.

On the Japanese web community about whaling, one recommends people to eat the whale dishes cooked by the specialists since we can learn what the whale dishes really are. And I felt that I needed to learn. So I ate the whale meat dishes in a restaurant some months ago.
I’m no good at cooking. So I couldn’t learn the skill anyway. I didn’t ask the cooks to teach it first of all, though. All I can say about the whale dishes is that they are really delicious. I wish that the whale meats were much cheaper.
These pictures really show how delicious those dishes are.

Antarctic Treaty in Japanese children’s books

We, Japan send Antarctic Research Expedition to Antarctica under Antarctic Treaty. So the treaty and its freeze of the territorial claims over Antarctica are very famous. And in Japan, we take it for natural that such children’s books like these are widely published. But I hear that it’s not in foreign countries including Europe and America. These except the web contents are usually lent in public libraries. So even very poor people have chances to learn it in Japan. (In Japan, illiteral people are very irregular, under our public education.) Continue reading Antarctic Treaty in Japanese children’s books

The sources of the truth that the Australian court rule to fine Kyodo Senpaku is internationally invalid

This topic is not so new but still too many anti-whaling idiots are ignorant of these facts. Kyodo Senpaku’s scientific whaling is out of Australian jurisdiction as it’s proven by these. ( I decorated the text to make it easy to copy-and-paste.)

The Australian court rule over Kyodo Senpaku is internationally invalid, Dr. Troy Coyle.

Dr. Troy Coyle(FB / LinkedIn) is a Sea Shepherd and former Cove Guardian. She got a PhD degree in fishery at University of New South Wales(her doctoral thesis) but now she works for New Zealand Steel. And she often comes to Covie Monitor Project, the Facebook page against eco-terrorism on Taiji. Eco-terrorists including Sea Shepherd, Dolphin Project, and so on harass dolphin fishery of Taiji. So CMP watches those eco-terrorists’ activity and post our public opinions about whaling, dolphin fishery, eco-terrorism, and so on. And she usually face their refutations.

On the post about Project exhibition “The Whalers”, she refers the Australian federal court rule against our Kyodo Sempaku around 17 Nov. 2015.(the article of the Age, an Australian newspaper.) But the court have no jurisdiction over Antarctic waters. Continue reading The Australian court rule over Kyodo Senpaku is internationally invalid, Dr. Troy Coyle.

Our government didn’t use the world’s tsunami donations for whaling.

It’s a quite old propaganda that our government use tsunami fund for whaling. But Sea Shepherd and other dolphin freaks still lie so repeatingly. And I pasted the refutation to Facebook very many times, too. Seeing Yamamoto San reprinted my refutaion, I decided to post this text on my entry for many people can do that. So free to reprint this text below.(This text is a bit different from my original. I revised some.)

* I updated on 25 Jan. 2015, for adding explanations of the word difference.

See the audit reports of Japan Red Cross: http://jrc.or.jp/eq-japan2011/
The most of the donations from overseas are made through Red Cross. Those donations are called Tsunami Relief Fund(津波義援金, Tsunami Gienkin). It’s not our government’s Restoration Fund(復興基金, Fukkou Kikin) from our tax. (As you can see, Tsunami Gienkin and Fukkou Kikin are completely different words.)
Read this and understand it!:
The URI below is about the 311 earthquake published on 16 Dec. 2011. It’s on the official website of Minshutou, Democratic Party in Japan. It was the ruling party till late Dec. 2012.

>But this year, onlookers are not only taking issue with the whaling expedition itself, but how extra government funding for the trip is being drawn from money intended to be used for reconstruction efforts from the March 11 disasters. The funds are from Japan’s own national budget, not charitable donations from overseas.
If you want to cause that our government uses the tsunami fund of Red Cross and so on with the donation from overseas, prove it!
