Boycott "World heritage; Kumano "as a tourist. As long as Taiji / Wakayama P, continues slaughter and captures of dolphins, small whales. Why do I recommend the boycott of Kumano?
First of all, I want to make this unnecessary slaughter stopped immediately.
I am thankful from the bottom of my heart to "the anti-whaling country, NGO, NPO, overseas media and Journalist, specialist, and individual" who are doing hard work for ending of Japanese whaling.

Getting worse and worse.

Their desire of dolphin use as resources does not stop. Unlimited !!!!
They express a dolphin as "marine resources" frequently.
A slaughter, dealing, a slave,,,,,, anything they want.
“Group: 250 dolphins await slaughter, lifetime of captivity at Japan's Taiji Cove “

Why do I recommend the boycott of "Kumano"?

1 )
In recent years, dolphin trade industry was successful by making Taiji into a base. Dolphin selection is premised on many dolphin slaughters.
A success of this industry means the income to Wakayama Prefecture, and the Wakayama governor gives permission of dolphin hunt. In other words, the candidate who does not give permission of dolphin hunt will not be elected.
(Japanese people do not have an anti-whaling political party.)
This is not only an issue of fishing village Taiji. The strategy out of which the Wakayama governor does not make permission come is required.
"The reason these undertakings have been successful is the dolphin drive fishery, which supplies living whales and dolphins to aquariums internationally as well as domestically. "

Although plum industry is very prosperous in Wakayama Prefecture, boycotting from the world is too complicated. And declaration of intention is very difficult.
( I have boycotted all the plum products.)
World heritage has relation with the world as the tourist industry.
Of course, A tourist resort area is anxious for authorization as world heritage as a means which obtains foreign currency.

"Kumano" is also surely the area which was anxious for world heritage authorization.
Fortunately, “Kumano” is owned by three prefectures.

Mie Prefecture, Nara Prefecture, and Wakayama Prefecture.

Your signature is simultaneously sent to three prefectures. This is the key. Do other two prefectures protect Wakayama?
I do not think so. I think that the tourist board of each prefecture puts pressure.

Please indicate.
And longing of an end of this slaughter should be shown to them.

please let them to be" deeply concerned ".

Which do they want to choose for the future?
Continuation of [dolphins and small whales ]capture and slaughter ? or The tourist from the world?
This is negotiation between the world and Prefectures.
The petitions of "The world heritage kumano -boycott" were launched by three communities and I hope you can sign.

Please make petitions spread !

If you have time, please launch The petitions of the same content ("The world heritage kumano -boycott" ).
Those "The petitions " sent from the world will surely be the strongest.

Please take action. Please share this with your friends.
Please make this spread.

thank you for your time.
