Kurils/Kunashir: Sunset at Sea of Okhotsk

The Kunashir Island is located to the east of the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, just a mere 40km/25mi across a straight. So for the people living in Kuril Islands, Japan is “the land of the setting sun”, as the sun slowly descends and dip behind then mountains in Japan. Japan doesn’t recognize Kurils as part of Russia and the two countries never signed a peace treaty because of the dispute.
