I suggest you read "Under the shadow of the Rising Sun - Japan and the Jews during the Holocaust Era" - edited in Boston 2016. 
https://library.oapen.org/bitstream/handle/20.500.12657/27351/1002657.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y
It is the history of that period and gives a lot of information about different institutions, names of politicians (Japanese and Internationals) involved with the rescue
of Jews refugees, oil business, etc.
Even if there is no mention of the persons you are looking for, the text and the "End notes" can give you some tips on where to search further. 
I hope you will succeed in your work and wish you good luck!
Best regards,
Susanna Vendel, Stockholm
