Narration translation (of the original video) offered by Hiraku Takeoka:
On the morning of December 24, an angler found a living giant squid swimming at moorings in Toyama. It was four meters in length, one meter in girth, swimming quietly with its head toward the sea bottom.
Kimura Nobuaki (the angler) said: "It had strong suckers, and I felt pain when it stuck to me. While I was trying to let it escape from the harbor, it twined around my body and clung to my arms…"
A giant squid usually lives in the deep sea, but apparently it strayed from Toyama Bay.
