Japanese Animals, Fish魚 , Birds 鳥, Reptiles, Insects and Wildlife are very unique and many area very rare and more rarely studied due to the difficult terrain here. I am starting to collect information for myself and other people around the world.
In this photo taken on Aug. 14, 2010, men on a rowboat chase a nine-meter (30-foot) mechanized whale during the annual whaling festival in Taiji, Wakayama Prefecture in western Japan in a re-creation of the old whale hunts, when hundreds of men in dozens of boats would set out with knives and harpoons. The ancient village has a long and complex relationship with the dolphin. In early September, the waters of this same cove will turn blood red, as it becomes a holding pen for the annual dolphin hunts.
