    Whale meat is served in sushi restaurants, but as it is very expensive and also not everyday meal in Japan, please take consideration and respect if it is served to you. It is Ok to say no thank you for the dish without explaining that you're allergic, it is against your religions or you forefathers in 20 generations have never tasted any kind meat at all.

    Whale-Kujira bacon has very unique and fatty taste, it melts in your mouth very easily.
