Japanese tourist outraged by greeting in the Kuril Islands

The older generation of Japanese people can’t come to terms with the idea that the southern islands of the Kuril ridge were lost to them in the Second World War and are now Russian territory.

The Japanese edition of Yomiuri reported on the 80-year-old tourist, Aiko Yasudu, who was outraged by the words of residents of Iturup Island during a meeting of tourists from the country of the Rising Sun:

Welcome to our island!

Aiko Yasudu's dissatisfaction is explained by the fact that she lived on this island in childhood and considers him her homeland.

In addition, an elderly Japanese woman expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that the Japanese authorities allow trips to the Kuril Islands. In her opinion, a visit to the islands by the Japanese has nothing to do with the prospect of their return.

A completely opposite opinion is shared by the younger generation of the Japanese.

Having visited Sakhalin in October of this year, a Japanese social activist and freelance journalist known as Shiho wrote that the region is attractive for tourists due to the opportunity to get acquainted with the original Russian culture.

The only thing Shiho complained about was the lack of signage in Japanese, which caused some discomfort.

If, after the journalist’s notes, the flow of Japanese tourists to Sakhalin increases, then the locals will surely meet them and make signs in several languages.

    It was not necessary to start a war against Russia in 1904, and the treaty of 1855, according to which Russia recognizes the Kuril Islands as Japanese, and Japan recognizes Sakhalin as Russian, Japan itself canceled in 1905, arrogantly declaring that the war cancels any treaties ... Now

    There is nothing to blame on the mirror, if the mug is crooked.

    - Back in school, I was in Japan ...
    - The Japanese themselves didn’t like me terribly ... - sheer duplicity is everywhere everywhere ... - a two-faced nation ... -As for the appearance, it’s really ... -very ugly people ...
    - Especially women ... -all are short-legged, bent-legged and club-footed ...- absolutely everything ...- all the time ... -Yes and physiognomy ...- this is some kind of continuous sur ...- half of the face, as a rule, it is covered with hair bristles - the forehead and ears (the ears are very ugly and large in size, like primates) and almost all have crooked teeth (and there is still an opinion that medicine, dentistry in Japan are at a high level) .. -This they somehow manage to select photogenic model models for advertising ... -Well, there are more Japanese than Russian in numbers ... -You can somehow choose ...

    On each island, it is necessary to carve in Japanese stone the wonderful words of the head of the Japanese delegation at the talks in Portsmouth on August 9, 1905. Mr. Minister Komura-san, on the proposals of the Russian side to return the island of Sakhalin, arrogantly replied:

    War crosses out all treaties. You have been defeated, and let's proceed from the current situation.

    I think this will be the best answer for the "good-natured" Japanese.

    No one has invited this Yaga. Do not like it - let him sit at home and eat his puffer.

    Signs will appear much earlier.
    To attract the same tourists and investors to the region, it is necessary to make it more attractive.
