Tsuruga Port(area:HOKURIKU/FUKUI)

Winter

The Tsuruga Port is a natural harbor on the Sea of Japan that for a long time flourished as a hub of trade between Japan and continental Asia.
In the Meiji period (1868-1912) a Eurasian boat train linked Tokyo Station directly with Tsuruga Station, and the Tsuruga Port functioned as a gateway to Europe via Vladivostok.
More recently, with the completion of the multipurpose international terminal featuring a wharf 14-meters deep in the Mariyama South Area, the Tsuruga Port is developing further as a distribution hub on the Sea of Japan.
