The Japanese government is being pressurized every year for the whale meat industry, but you must acknowledge that the right wing hardly cares, they will just pull out the whole "racism" and "not respecting their tradition" problem.
Yahoo! Japan is also very detached from the main Yahoo.
At least, my Japanese Yahoo E-mail account is not connected to other language servers.
However, my Chinese account works everywhere apart from Yahoo Japan.
Once I logged in, I'm in yahoo HK, yahoo UK and yahoo ES
If I have to switch to my Spanish Yahoo account I have to log out from my Chinese account.
But I don't have to do anything with my Japanese account because it is separate.
The Japanese population is well aware that whale meat is not welcomed by foreigners.
If foreigners try to enter a restaurant with whale meat, the waitors/ waitresses will often ask them to leave.
"This is a very traditional Japanese restaurant."
"Sorry, we sell whale meat here to Japanese customers only."
"Sorry, our restaurant is very traditional and not for cultural outsiders."

Legally ok in Japan, but still not logical as it's claimed purpose. Expecially with other crafts from whale bones, teeth or parts.
Of course we know, but the laws do not work our way...
In the past years, even petitions which were written correctly were not successful in terminating Yahoo! Japan's whale meat sales.
Not to mention that this petition has errors.
