360˚ Panoramic Tour of the Russian Far East
The Kuril Islands in Russia's Sakhalin Oblast region, often called the Russian Far East, form a volcanic archipelago that stretches approximately 1,300 km (810 mi) northeast from Hokkaido, Japan, to Kamchatka, Russia, separating the Sea of Okhotsk from the North Pacific Ocean.
From a Russian Orthodox Church in Korsakov on Sakhalin Island to a forest dining experience in Paratunka near Petropavlosk in Kamchatka these panoramas provide a mere glimpse of the wonders of this least travelled part of the world.
In the company of @nickrains we departed Otaru, on the island of Hokkaido on the 31st of May 2012 and arrived in Petropavlovsk on the 9th of June. On the first panorama is a video, shot and edited, by another travelling companion. Pieter De Vries, gives you some of the experiences of being there.
