Photographer's Note

It is about 90 kilometers north of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. "Kholmsk" means "hill" in Russian, and the city's background is surrounded by mountains.
It is the largest commercial harbor of Sakhalin Island, and as a non-freezing port, shipments to overseas countries, including Japan, as well as domestic shipments, are made through this port.

It was originally a Japanese settlement called "Maoka", but Soviet Union recaptured the island in 1945 and it became its current name from 1946.
Japanese occupation, trout, salmon, cod, herring and it is, in the catch, but now it is a paper-mill, processing fisheries products are developed, and fishing boats are operating.
The Sakhalin-Vanino ferry operates and has a maritime fishing fleet.
Japanese occupation, as old paper mills, which is run with industrial Kombinat(complex producing) the paper currently operates.

The people of Sakhalin Kholmsk are very kind. The air is very clean in Kholmsk port city. Most residents are naive and unpretentious. But there are not many foreign tourists. Sakhalin and Japan's regular ferry routes are usually opened in the summer, but they are not that popular. Sakhalin and Korea have regular flights every week.
Korea, Japan, Sakhalin, Kuril Islands, Magadan and Kamchatka Peninsula would be nice to make tourist package products, but I think it's a pity that all three countries are not active.
