    This logo is very similar design to the one (the Second Emblem) from JOC.

    http://www.joc.or.jp/about/emblem/

    This Second Emblem of JOC was actually designed by Junko Koshino.

    Did Kashiwa Sato copied from her design ???

    You know Chopri - quite a lot has been achieved on this page, but you represent the small percentage who seem like you will always have your eyes and ears covered. You imagine that individual races can prevail here on this ever shrinking planet - but we all have to work together, without boundaries, to better understand each other and to value and support our natural environments.

    This is exactory the comment you actually should feedback to the flamenquita who always his/her eyes and ears covered in his/her comments. You didn't find any strange to this person & other protesters blaming comments at all ???

    It sound very quibble to me that since you & protesters started to drop the bomb of insult to people in Taiji & others in Japan with your rude behavior mentioning many words of "shameful barbarians" to civilians in Japan; some protesters had broke the law & disturbing the public order in Japan. Then why do we even have to follow the way you request to be "tolerant" to you guys who never attempted to behave "tolerant" to us through these situation & process you have done to us??? We, Japan side, have never started to insult & claim you & the protesters from ourselves about this topic on the thread & other relevant situation; you guys are the one who started to drop the bomb to harass the civilians in Japan by nitpicking this issue, then many resistants like me started to take an action to "self-defense" our society from the foreign protesters. If the protesters won't be able to change their bahavior by themselves nobody in Japan will listen to your words & action which just provoke or motivate us to resist your arrogant & selfish approach.

    I'm so shocked & surprised that you & most of protesters have not yet realized that the reason you guys had incurred the the wrath of Japanese about this isse...

    I am angered by so many ignorant posts on this page (far too many to read one by one). Ric and his team of volunteers come to Japan as peaceful protesters to shed light on the barbaric killings of the dolphins.

    Ric O'Barry definitely had invaded fishermens' private land with no permission to take peeping photos/films. He broke the law & insulted fishermens' human rights through the media; O'Barry & his volunteers had absolutely disturbed public order in Japan with such "barbaric" way to insult & provoke the people in Taiji & Japan.

    I am still surprised that even after the global interest after The Cove (which is have not brought myself to watch yet), that there is not more focus to stopping this small group of fisherman from killing hundreds of dolphins every year.

    I am sitll surprised that why you guys are so ill-intentionnaly persistent to the people in Taiji & why none of you guys have ignored protesting to major institutions to save more endangered dolphins I've mentioned above.

    Mercury content is certainly an issue, but the main issue is the sale of the dolphins (that are not killed) to aquariums and seaworlds where they are forced to live in captivity and perform tricks for human entertainment.

    As I've mentioned above there is no proof about the mercury issue, and the aquariums is the one you & protesters should be able to take care of your own country's aquariums before protesting to the other country.

    Dolphins are intelligent species - more than your average barn animal ....they should be left to roam the oceans freely.

    Again, there is no proof of that. Yes, it is your (protesters') freedom of speech to believe anything in your country, but it would be nonsense & "barbariatic" behavior to force your opinions on the other country's people who would never listen & agree to your rude & impertinence attitude.

    The idea of tradition/culture is no excuse to kill the dolphins - here or in the Faroe Is......what was ok 100 or 1000 years ago, is no longer accepted!! Most Japanese dont know that this is still going on.....much the same as the government covered up all the issues surrounding the fukushima nuclear power plant .....

    This kind of insulting attitude is the main reason why people don't listen to the protesters. You have arbitrarily presumed to judge someone in the other country as "shameful barbarians" at the begenning and many other protesters have started to blaming Japanese on this thread. And Fukushima nuclear issue is nothing relevant to this issue as I've already explained above... You are not the center of the world and whatever you & protester have in common is not the world's common sense. Again, even though you already know that you cannot convince Japanese people to stop hunting whales & dolphins, you really better watch your arrogant and cocksure attitude before complaining to us. You will just expose yourself nothing but your pitiable "barbariatic" and ignorant behavior to the world. Yes, the world is watching YOU.

    I am a resistant against the protesters who repeatedly commented "shame on you" or other rude words with such attitude. Actually the protesters are the one who started to blame again me, Japanese, from this article and started to take an action to resist them (&you) back. In the United States it's called as "self defense" theory, right? When someone had attacked your nation or territory & society, America started the "self-defense" by using their Armed Force, right?

    Well, if the protesters will change their way to negotiate others just like the way FBI have taken to others, I'm pretty sure that the people will listen to the protesters opinions. I think what the biggest mistake the protesters chose the way & process is that they took the way to blame others with rude attitude instead of negotiation. If one would blame others he/she will be definitely resisted with wrath & same rude attitude just like a mirror, huh???

    ChopriCana, your agrument is poor, you are trying to justifiy an issue that is way beyond your understanding.

    Ahhh.... Well... (-_-;)

    So if you want to protest & convince Japanese why can't you prove your values and ethics you mentioned above ???

    I don't think nobody who support for dolphin & whale hunting will understand your theory if you can't prove... You didn't go to school to study how to make a persuasive essay or speech ???

    Whatever you just believe, go ahead. Just believe the way.
    Since you got no evidence & proof unless some "hypothetical theory" other-protesters already posted above I can guarantee that the protesters like you will be never able to succeed to negotiate & persuade us to agree with whatever you just think & believe inside of your brain.

    Actually fishermen (including Taiji) & other meat manufactures in Japan perform a ritual ceremony in season to pray that the animals' soul may rest in peace with expressing their gratitude to the animals. It is usually called as "供養祭 (memorial service ceremony / festival to treat the soul of the killed animals for rest in peace. )" in Japanese. Those people have actually done their own tasks to treat animals' lives in their cultural & religious way you, Christian based conservative people, may never be able to understand... (-_-;)

    The strange point is that the Ric O'Barry & the Cove staff never introduced the "供養祭" by the Taiji Residents for the souls of dolphins.

    Here are the news articles I can easily find their "鯨供養祭" (Whale/Dolphin Soul Festival) with a photo.

    Who said that they are all ""barbaric people" ???

    Do they clearly look like barbarians ???

    Why Ric O'Barry & other foreign protesters (including the Sea Shepherd) didn't introduce this part on media ???

    a) is it eating the meat that people are protesting about (Chopricana, I understand that people ate dolphin/whale meat a hundred years ago but I think what people are trying to say is that nowadays because of pollution the mercury has become an issue in a way that it wasn't way back then).

    Again, this is just as "hypothesis" the protesters through some cheesy campaigns have meaninglessly claimed it as their own beliefs & theory just almost close to religion level. And the theory have not been indeed approved by nowhere at all. Some scientist researched & published the theory, but the theory has not actually proved by other scientists on the world yet. This is the biggest point why danger of the mercury-toxicity inside of the meat is approved by NO INSTITUTIONS.

    b) is it keeping dolphins in aquariums for entertainment?

    Are you taling about the fishermen in Taiji? If "yes" you need to watch this videos below. It seem like that the Taiji Fishermen Associations is feeding limited numbers of dolphins for meat purpose & aquariums.

    [Video Part 1/2] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxOb0xeytgs

    [Video Part 2/2] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fj4j1-rJcVM

    c) is it the ones who died in the pen during the typhoon (Ive seen nothing of that in the J news by the way. Has anyone else?)

    There is no such news had been reported. There is no information that the fishermen had captured & locked the dolhins in the pen before the beginning of the opening of the fishing season. Ric O'Barry & Sea Shepherd may announced & reported the fabricated news but no reliable proof had been found yet.

    d) Is it that they are perceived to be endangered (which I thought they were not).

    Not at all. No types of these dolphines have been endangered species.

    Taiji Fisherment follows the rule of what kind of dolphins they are allowed to hunt & not hunt.

    You can check the detail from the IUCN [http://www.iucn.org/] or the WWF [http://www.wwf.org/] to find out for more detail. And these Two World's Biggest Institutions have wached the fishermen in all over Japan for long time, and off cource the fishermen in Taiji never broke the rule & regulation from the institutions. Only the protesters have misunderstood the situation.

    e) Is it the method of killing that is the problem? (Which is why Taiji is singled out compared to other areas, because of its method of killing).

    I am 100% sure that you & other protesters including on this article & thread have never visited to a slaughterhouse for cows, pigs, sheep (for mutton & lamb) and other animals we all eat their meat on a table and watched the . The point is that the dolphins are the ones who have been butchered by the fishermen on the outdoor-typed abattoir at a cove, yes "The Cove" movie. I'm pretty sure if the fishermen have slaughtered the dolphins inside of a building they would never been taken many illegal peeping-photos/films by "The Cove" staff.

    Yes, it is very clear that you haven't still realized that the campaign you & protesters have mentioned above have intentionally produced by propaganda through media; and the campaign really have succeeded to motivate the you & protesters in western nations to other country's custom. The campaign & activity which is well usually held by conservatism group or party is generally described as "indirect aggression" for the purpose to monopolize the world's fish-market in industrial business.

    Even though you & protesters believe whatever you suggest in your own nation(s) it doesn't mean that you don't really have a power to change the other country's custom & business. Asia, Africa, and (maybe) South. America won't be the part of your side to agree the way you are willfully doing. Do you know the population in Asia? How many of them will agree & listen to the way 100% of the demand you protest against us ???

    And you & protesters have never imagined & even tried to get the other people's point of view and see things from their angle as well as from your own. I suggest that is the point of why so many resistant against you guys. Still don't understand ?

    The people on here who think its ok to kill and eat dolphins are plain disgusting.

    That's your (& protesters') own opinion in England where you're living, and it is not the world's common opinion & sense. People in India (whose population is about 1,000,000,000 which is way higher than the population in England) thinks that killing and eating cows for food is disgusting. Understand?

    Yes it is cruel and I totally 100% reject dolphins and whales being "held" in aquariums!! I do not and will not subscribe to the idea. I stand by my original comment and will never accept that it is ok to kill intelligent whales and dolphins who can naturally connect with us!!! In the UK we stopped hunting dolphins/whales years ago!!

    So you should go to aquariums in England to protest them to release the dolphins & whales in your propaganda-philosophy before protesting to the people in Japan, shouldn't you?

    ByTheWay, John C. Lilly was the First One to state the "intelligent whales and dolphins" as "hypothesis." His theory was not yet proved by today's all dolphin/whale researchers & scientists in real. People in India also claims that cows are who can naturally connect with god & human just like you've claimed for dolphins & whales.

    It's English people's choice to hunt or don't hunt dolphins & whales in England. That's the matter in England. But Japan don't think that & choose the way. Understand? And you have no authority to demand us to change the way & policy you take in your country!!!

    Instead of repeating like a parrot from what some media said on your TV, why won't you research the world's point-of-view to get a broad outlook and try to get rid of your egocentric attitude & idea? Nobody will open their mind to listen to your (protesters') demands for sure.

    The Japan Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (JMHL) shows the life expectancy of Taiji (太地町) residents on the URL below. Men (男) lives 77.7 years, while women (女) lives 85.3 years. These are not much different from the national average, and much longer than any other nationalities. The elderly people in Taiji have eaten the dolphins & whales since they are children. Therefore their archivements of the longevity is nothing relevant to the danger of the toxicity from the sea AT ALL.

    http://www.mhlw.go.jp/toukei/saikin/hw/life/ckts05/hyo01-09.html

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_life_expectancy

    So whoever trying to assume that the people in Taiji have been in danger of death by "the serious risk of mercury-toxicity from the dolphin & whale meat" or whatever for some reason...

    Where is the reliable & trustworthy evidence to refute these data above ???

    Whatever you may have your (forged) scientific-research info, have the research been approved by the world's authority(s) ??? Or is it still been treated as the unreliable hypothesis ???

    Protesters, you better SHOW ME YOUR LOGICAL PROOF to refute these statistics above before being cocksure of yourself !!!

    Hey guys, modern Japan cannot take any credit for the longevity of people born a hundred years ago! They lived a good portion of their lives without the toxicity from the Oceans. Japan (as will ALL ocean dwelling industrial nations) have treated the waters they rely on as a limitless garbage dump and wonder why the food chain is screwed up. Dolphin being one of them...no I doubt the main reason for the protests is concern for Taiji health but it is certainly a great precipitating benefit to stopping this stupidity.

    Totally out of point & inconsistent theory. The Japanese elderly people whose current average life expectancy of men is 79.00 yrs & women is 85.81 yrs today used to eat more dolphin/whale meat than today's Japanese young generations at their age of children regardless of location in Japan. Yes, about hundred years ago dolphins & whales meats have been more consumed in all over Japan in Edo, Meiji, Taisho, and the beginning of Showa Period. There are many elderly people who are around 100 yrs-old in/around Taiji. And children who were born between 1950's and 70's, the Japanese Economic & Industrial Growth Periods, have even not been affected by some serious relevant diseases from the meat by the toxicity you'Ve mentioned above. Here are the statistics below.

    You really behave like the Australian protesters I've mentioned on the video in last comment above... Well, nice try for your preposterously unjust charge to make against the dolphin / whale supporters. (^_^)

    This is the typical case of how the protesters argues to Japanese people.

    Both URL below is same YouTube video you can click to watch either one of them.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYxnx9VYc1Q

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JDmxOaDHTs&feature=related

    Even though this video is the debate about the Japanese whale-hunting Australians protested against Japanese on the TV Show by Takeshi Kitano, famous movie director & comedian, you can observe their mental motivation just like these protesters against Japanese dolphin-hunting on this article. The funny point is that these Australians (they gotta be so intelligent since they speak so fluent Japanese) could not logically argue about their insist & demand with "reliable consistent ideas in order with evidence" at all... Japanese side on this video had well opposed their argument with stating their Japanese ideas in logical order with strong evidence... Japanese completely refuted Australians (protesters) theory.... (-_-;)

    I never eaten dolphin-meat, but whale-burger is very good you may wanna try; it's very delicious & healthy unlike the forged propaganda had reported on media. There is a popular whale-burger in Hakodate City, Hokkaido. If you're living in South Korea, which is also hunting whales to consume it for food more than Japan & the protesters can say nothing to the Nation for some reason (they're really scared of Korean Mafias I suppose), you can also eat many more valuable Korean whale gourmet you may wanna try in Korean whale restaurants.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuHHKey6Z-Y

    BTW Mr. Tony, the Famous Texas Propaganda-Buster I really respect him so much, had visited to Taiji Village and report everything about the situation in the village there on the video below. He also tasted a whale sashimi & he loved it!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aY7I9wLiiXY

    Eating whale & dolphin meat is completely safe. Japan, the World's Top Leading Nation for the field of the longevity & the health maintenance, guarantees it !

    There are a lot of LOL comments - but not from the protesters. There is sadly nothing to laugh about here. It is absolutely tragic actually. The dolphins who died in the pens, despite many pleas to release them as the storm approached - died by being battered by the storm against the bars of the cage in violent waves. They were showing distress well before the storm as they sensed it approaching. There was no excuse for that. There is nothing but sadness and lack of compassion in this situation - and yes, horrific cruelty.

    There are a lot of "Shame on you, Japan" comments - but not from the ones who support & cares about the innocent Taiji People. There is sadly nothing to be ashamed about what they're doing. It is absolutely tragic for your self-centered interpretation to blame others before taking care of your own social problems actually. Poor fishermen in Taiji lost their dolphins to manufacture the meat for living by the storm. These fishermen have regulated themselves the numbers of dolphins they hunt in each year & some of their houses, cars, and other necessaries for living have been lost or damaged by the disaster. The cruel brainwashed-protesters will then be prepared themselves to harass the innocent people who even have to feed their children after the storm... There was no excuse for that. There is nothing but sadness and lack of compassion in this situation - and yes, horrific cruelty by the propaganda-protesters.

    And who are you to decide what people should feel strongly about? The problem at Taiji is not that the species is endangered. So why keep going on about it? What are you doing about endangered species, if it's so important to you?

    I am having hard time to figure out your inconsistent comment... It seems like that you just really hate all the people in Taiji because of you have been completely brainwashed by the forged "The Cove" movie... You really can't consider your anger management, can you??? BTW "The Cove" movie have been indeed intentionally edited by the director, Louis Psihoyos, to create a forged information (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjeLfqycjRs). You didn't know that ???

    My point is that if the protesters really care for the dolphins & other animals who have been killed by human they should have a bigger fish to fry to arrange to take the priority. Endangered sea-mammals are more in serious risk than the other dolphins you love to nitpick what the people of Taiji are doing. You should contact to the IUCN [http://www.iucn.org/] or the WWF [http://www.wwf.org/] to find out the situation of the species. YOU are the ONE who really care for dolphins like your hero, Ric O'Barry, aren't you??? What is your & his first priorities to take an action to protest against ??? People of Taiji in real??? Or the people who are killing the endangered dolphins & sea-mammals I've mentioned above ???

    Which is more serious case & dangerous situation you & the protesters should consider about the lives of the animals ??? You have been totally missed yourself & your thought...

    Before repeating like a parrot from the forged propaganda-media, PLEASE PLEASE look your philosophy over again more carefully, be calm and double-cheek the priorities, and prevent yourself to miss-arrange the matter to your own convenience. Good Luck !!!

    The sad thing is that the Protesters have lost themselves; they don't logically understand what they're doing and are not even cocksure of their clear position. As I have mentioned above there are many endangered sea-animals which have been killed by human today, but the protesters have definitely missed the target of the object they should take an action to blame. This is the definitely very eccentric & suspicious protest they are taking the action.

    Again you protesters better watch your cocksure attitude before complaining to others.
