Sounds yummy

YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — A Japanese whaling operator, after struggling for years to promote its products amid protests from conservationists, has found a new way to cultivate clientele and bolster sales: whale meat vending machines.

The Kujira (Whale) Store, an unmanned outlet that recently opened in the port town of Yokohama near Tokyo, houses three machines for whale sashimi, whale bacon, whale skin and whale steak, as well as canned whale meat. Prices range from 1,000 yen ($7.70) to 3,000 yen ($23).


  1. When I lived in Bastrop County in Texas, there was a famous Pecan Pie shop on the other side of the county. The guy that owned the store developed a vending machine that would vend full Pecan Pies. He said that it made him a bunch of money.

  2. Try whale some time, you'll see why they eat it.

  3. I heard the guy is going to announce his homemade chunky style Orca Ambergris soup soon

  4. This oughta have the PETA people spinning around on their eyebrows.

    1. PETA cracks me up!
      For every one the save, I'll eat three.
