whale meat

Sushi shop owner Katsuji Furuuchi makes up a whale sushi from a sliced minke meat and a rice ball in Japanese whaling town Ayukawahama, Miyagi prefecture. Ayukawahama was once a major whaling port, where fishermen would drag the ocean giants into harbour, colouring the water red and, elder residents recall, sending the stench of whale carcasses wafting through town.
