Can you order whale in restaurants in Japan?

    Yes, in Japan, whales are considered as edible as fish, and it can be served as sashimi, sushi, or in sukiyaki, although it is not a common menu item. However, it is available; the restaurant Kujiraya (meaning “whale shop”), for example, located in the bustling Tokyo district of Shibuya, serves whale year-round. While whale is rarely eaten in Japan, the Kujiraya restaurant prides itself on serving the whale’s “rare” and “delicious” delicacies. The Japanese disregard for the passionate outcry against their whaling acvitivies has sparked many a heated debate, but so far only their submission to the whaling ban would solve the problem.
