What awaits you
The fate of the Japanese emigration You will learn about the aftermath of the Russo-Japanese War and understand why many Japanese had to move. What were their occupations, what difficulties did they face and how did their further destiny develop? We will talk about how the settlers influenced the way of life of the townspeople, and also talk about the outstanding Japanese who contributed to the development of Vladivostok
Japan in city space In the borderland Vladivostok, many monuments have survived, whose past is associated with the Japanese. We will visit the former Japanese consulate and the building where Japanese children studied in the past. We will walk through the atmospheric Japanese Quarter: you will see shopping and brothels, hear about famous Japanese entrepreneurs and poor girls forced into prostitution in a difficult situation. You will also visit the garden, where cherry blossoms bloom in spring - there is also a stele in memory of a Buddhist prayer house, the fate of which we will tell about during a walk.
The tour will be led by one of our team's guides.
