Whaling ships on display at Nagasaki port

Yeeha, the festival goes on...

Reported by Kyodo News, April 20, 2002:

Whaling ships on display at Nagasaki port

Two Japanese ships that returned from a "research whaling" voyage in the Antarctic Ocean were put on display Saturday at the port of Nagasaki in southwestern Japan.

The 7,575-ton Nisshin Maru, the lead ship, and the 720-ton Yushin Maru, a visual observation ship, will also be exhibited Sunday. The display is a part of the Nagasaki whales festival organized by the Institute of Cetacean Research, a Tokyo-based organization leading Japan's research whaling operation.
