AUTO TOUR • MAY-OCTOBER
Tikhaya Bay and the Klokovsky Waterfall
The Torii Gate marked the sacred grounds of the Higashi Shiraura Inari Jinja Shinto Shrine, which was opened in 1914. The Torii (or the archway to the Shinto Shrine) bears the inscription “In honor of the 2600th anniversary of the founding of Great Japan” - this mythological date was widely celebrated in 1940. The top platform offers a great view of the village, the sea, and the hills. You can see seals through the binoculars installed here.
Tikhaya Bay is a unique natural area, located in the Makarovsky district, 130 km from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. The bay is located in the Terpeniya (Patience) Gulf, on the eastern coast of Sakhalin. The bay was named “Tikhaya” (meaning “quiet”) by the first Russian navigator Ivan Kruzenshtern. The view to the bay is obstructed by the Zhdanko Ridge, if seen from the road.
The Klokovsky waterfall is one of the highest waterfalls on Sakhalin. It is located on an unnamed stream not far from Cape Klokova, hence the name. The height of the waterfall is 48 meters (it varies depending on the season).
