Kunashir

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Kunashir (Russian: Кунаши́р, koo-nah-SHIHR) is the southernmost of the Kuril Islands in Sakhalin Oblast. Known Kunashiri (国後) in Japanese, the island is only 24 km away from Hokkaido, Japan, and is visible on a clear day. Appropriately enough, the Japanese characters mean "after the country", although the original Ainu name actually means "Black Island".

Understand[edit]
