Link between Israel to Japan: Japanese-Jewish

Jewish Japanese and Japanese Jews brothers and sisters? Japanese Jews??

There are documented links between Judaism and Japanese people with several cultural similarities.

Some researchers claim of connections between Jews and Japanese people that date hundreds and, even thousands of years ago, back to Moses.

A Jewish-Japanese link is found in many parts of Japanese culture. Marriage between men and women of both Nihongo and Judaic cultures is rare, but not unusual.

Japanese - Jewish?

Anyone who is an "otaku" about Jewish Japanese people is very rare. It is a rare to find a person who is Japanese and Jewish. If you have a story to share about your experiences in a Jewish-Japanese or Japanese-Jewish culture, or want to make contact with another JJ otaku, email the publisher, Bob Zucker. Read experiences from Japanese-Jewish born and converted Jews known as Japanese Jews.

While I am not Japanese, I am Jewish and have a strong interest in learning more. I hope to meet others who share similar interests. Visit my home page.

The Fugu Plan: The Untold Story of the Japanese and the Jews During World War Two

by Marvin Tokayer (Author), Mary Swartz (Author)

In all the literature of the Holocaust and of World War II, the story of the European Jews who fled across the world to the unlikely haven of Japan has remained untold -- until now. The Fugu Plan: The Untold Story Of The Japanese And The Jews During World War Two is a powerful narrative which follows a group of these refugees throughout their journey across Stalin's Russia, their experiences in Japan, and their struggle for survival in an Asian ghetto. Interwoven with this moving saga are the details of an astounding top-secret plan to create an "Israel in Asia" under Japanese control by offering displaced European Jews a safe haven in Manchuria in return for the financial and technical skills they would bring to this outpost of the Japanese Empire. Although this so-called "Fugu Plan" would founder with Japan's entry into the Tripartite Pact with Nazi Germany and Italy in 1940, its legacy, as the Holocaust swept over Europe, was the survival of thousands of Jews issued Japanese transit visas and given wartime refuge in Asia. That they survived at all is testimony to the courage of many individuals, both Japanese and Jews, whose stories are told here -- and to the seeds planted by the unlikely vision embodied in The Fugu Plan. An important and vital addition to the Judaic studies collection about an almost unknown aspect of the holocaust experience. -- Midwest Book Review. Paperback: 287 pages. Publisher: Weatherhill (April 1996). Language: English
