Port of Humanity Tsuruga Museum人道の港 敦賀ムゼウム
This museum is a valuable resource which houses exhibits relating to the landing of Jewish refugees escaping from the Nazi regime in Germany and Polish orphans rescued from Siberia clutching “Visas for Life” issued by Chiune Sugihara, the acting Japanese Consul in Kaunas, Lithuania. Visitors can hear recordings of Chiune Sugihara’s voice and see watches and visas left behind by the refugees among other things.

Fukui Main Areas
Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
