Abstract

This chapter gives a brief background of the subject matter and defines the scope of the subject to be examined in this book. It then offers a literature review of previous studies of Japanese whaling, which demonstrates the paucity of studies of Japanese whaling culture in general and of memorial rites for whales in particular, and thus demonstrates the significance of this book.
