Spreading the charms of Japan to the world from Fukui



Griffis Memorial Hall 


Life in Fukui

Here are the photos of the Griffis Memorial Hall under construction. Finally, it unveiled, and I could see the whole building. William Elliot Griffis is a great person of the Meiji period whom Fukui City will make an effort to introduce him. He influenced young people of the time in Fukui, and it has been handed down to us. The effects may have been set the groundwork for present-day Fukui ; the happiest prefecture in Japan. Also, Fukui Prefecture is known that produced many famous companies and presidents during an era of Japan’s high-speed economic growth. So I think he was one of those who developed such human resources. I expect more information from Fukui City in the future. (K.A)
