Japanese whalers shot water cannons at anti-whaling activists on Saturday, the conservationist group's founder claimed, hours after the activists tracked down the hunting fleet in the remote and icy seas off Antarctica. The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is chasing the fleet in the hopes of interrupting Japan's annual whale hunt, which kills up to 1,000 whales a year. The two sides have clashed violently in the past, including last year, when a Sea Shepherd boat was sunk after its bow was sheared off in a collision with a whaling ship. (AP)

As many as 1,000 vehicles were stuck in traffic over a distance of around 20 kilometers on a national road in Tottori Prefecture from New Year's Eve due to heavy snow and an accident, local officials said Saturday. The traffic jam was triggered when a tanker skidded on Route 9 in the town of Daisen on Friday afternoon and blocked both sides of the road, and the congestion likely worsened as large amounts of snow continued to fall in the area, the officials said.

People who came of age in 2010 comprise less than 1 percent of Japan's population, the first time the proportion of new adults has fallen below the 1 percent line, according to Internal Affairs and Communications Ministry projections released Friday. The new statistics confirm that Japanese society is aging and its people are having fewer babies. In the year, a projected 1.24 million people reached the age of 20, comprising 0.97 percent of the total projected population of 127.36 million. (AP)
