I am researching 17th Century Japanese narrative-picture handscrolls (and other materials) looking at the coastal whaling traditions around southern / eastern Japan, particularly Nagasaki/Kyushu.  The North Pacific right whale, Eubalaena japonica, was a prime target.  Would welcome information regarding postage stamps / cachets depicting a North Pacific right whale so that I might consider for inclusion in publication.  Philatelic examples of the other right whales are abundant.

Thank you very much.
Best Wishes
