Isn’t that a beautiful image? It looks like paradise doesn’t it. It could be like this every morning. But today is New Year’s Day and the dolphin/small whale hunters are still on their break. In 24 hours the beauty of this place could once again be tarnished if they go out and find a pod to drive into the Cove.
The drive hunting will continue until the end of April unless the hunters reach their quota beforehand.

The freedom of the waters near Taiji is nearing the end dolphins/whales. Swim far away and fast. Sorry that we cannot bring better tidings to you for the New Year. One day…
We will not give up our protest until the drive hunt is history.
