Tsuruga Port was a hub for land and sea transport since ancient times. So you can meet a lot of heart-warming and moving stories at this museum. This museum displays articles, photos, documents related to 763 Polish orphans rescued in Siberia in 1920 as well as some 6,000 Jewish refugees who fled from Nazi Germany in 1940 carrying “visas for survival” issued by Mr. Chiune Sugihara, an acting consul of Japanese consulate office in the Republic of Lithuania.
