4 Photos of Kurill Islands: Rasshua Island

Photos of Kurill Islands: Rasshua Island

Posted on November 2, 2014 by tim

A group of photographers continue to travel through the Kurill Islands – the group of islands that border Japan and were previously Japanese territory. This one is a tiny Rasshua island, however even on this tiny piece of land there are remains of Japanese roads, fortifications and awesome nature. Let’s see it!

This island is just 13 km long and 6 km wide. However, it is a home of an active volcano with the same name – Rasshua. To land on these grounds one needs to be lucky as the weather conditions such as strong winds and tides can prevent you from doing this.

Lots of seaweed on the shore. A traveller has to put his boat in some distance from the shore, as the seaweed doesn’t let the boat pass, and then walk through this brownish-green food of sea animals.
