Japanese supporting whaling

The latest statistics have shown that 60 % of Japenese people are supporting whaling, even though International Court of Justice had forbid them.
International Court of Justice, the highest judiciary body of the United Nations, recently banned Japan continue to hunt whales in the Antarctic.

The Japanese government has taken note of the decision of the court, and stated that it would end its whaling program in the Antarctic, but they also mentioned that they are preparing another program, that doesn't break international rules, and where is exceptionally allowed to hunt for scientific and commercial purposes.

They also stated that they will continue to hunt whales, even in different places, and the next one will probably be the North-West part of the Pacific.
What is really awkward when we are talking about this is that there are people in Japan who love to eat whale's meat ( so we understand their point of view ), but on the other hand a lot of them who don't eat it, are fine with this hunt.

When asked why they support this, if they do not eat it, they said that hunting and eating whales is part of Japanese culinary tradition, and that if they stopped eating or killing them, it would threaten their tradition.
What is also the " problem " and the reason why they support this, is beacuse they don't want any kind interference, even it's from International Court.

They feel it's like someone is ruining their sovereignty.
Well we disagree, because someone should stand up for whales, since they can't.
