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.

The renewal of Des Liens de Emmanuel Chanel, my links page.

I maintain Des Liens de Emmanuel Chanel, my links page for a long time. And it got very heavy. I think that my links collection is convenient if it were much lighter. In addition, smart phones are very popular devices. So I feel such heavy page wouldn’t be good since the smart phone users would have severe limitations of the ammount of transferred data. So I moved the old heavy main page to Edition 1.

And for the long history of the links page, it shows very old generation of the net communities. Especially so about the websites about opinions. So I want the renewal of its opinions section, too. So the opnions section is named Opinions & Social Science Season 1

Especially, Edition 1 is very heavy. But on this renewal, I made all those pages on Des Liens de Emmanuel Chanel be mobile friendly by Google’s Page Speed Insights.

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

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.)

I created Links for Countering Anti-Japanese Hate Speech about History Textbooks

I created the Japanese page named Links for Countering Anti-Japanese Hate Speech about History Textbooks inside Des Liens de Emmanuel Chanel on 20 January.(the Japanese entry) And I made its English version on 23 March. The page is to refute anti-Japanese propaganda, historical revisionism, and historical denialism: the cause that Japanese history textbooks don’t mention our undesired history.
A significant number of people say that Japanese historical education denies undesired history. They throw that word to us, Japanese people who refute Comfort Women, Nanjing Massacre, the wars of aggression, and so on. But they don’t know anything that Japanese education system teaches actually. And they don’t try to know. So it’s no problem to take such words for hate speech.
On the page, I show how to investigate our history textbooks for primary schools and for middle schools on the page. So it’s very useful if you seriously want to know what Japanese textbooks say.

John Thiel tries to delete his undesired history about our refutation of the Australian court’s jurisdiction over Antarctic waters.

John Thiel(Facebook / LinkedIn) often posts comments on the Facebook page of Japan Today. I don’t know what he says about the other topics of Japan well. But on its post of the Australian court’s rule against our whaling vessels , facing our refutation of its jurisdiction over Antarctic waters by Yamamoto San, Tricia Wiles, and me, he deleted his comment thread including our replies and reposted the same comment. So he tried to delete his undesired history about our refutation. Continue reading

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

An ALT in Tanabe City copied stereotypical false accusation against Japanese education system.

Mike Rhodes(FB account) is an American living in Tanabe City, Wakayama, Japan. He is a private English teacher and he attends some extraordinary English classes for Shinjo Middle School as an Assistant Language Teacher. (He testified that he teaches English in a public middle school there. But those English-speaking teachers don’t teach English or so in ordinary classes of public schools in our education system. English-speakers can become ALTs without knowing English grammar well.) He started the argument with this. (It’s the comments on the post of Prime Minister’s Office of Japan FB page. So the emphases are put by me.) Continue reading
