Aniva Lighthouse (Jap. Naka-Siretoko Misaki) is not only the most original and complex technical roject of the Karafuto period, but also an outstanding world achievement in the practice of lighthouse construction of that time. The need to build a lighthouse was due to unpredictable insidious currents, with the mixing of the waters of the Sea of Okhotsk and Aniva Bay, frequent fogs and stone banks, heavy traffic. The author of the project is Japanese engineer Miura Shinobu.
The journey begins in the village of Novikovo, which took its name in honor of the legendary cruiser Novik, who in this place fought a Japanese ship in the Russo-Japanese war of 1905. Having gone out to sea on a boat and having walked 35 kilometers past the abandoned village of Yuzhnoye, Cape Marble from Slyda, after about an hour and a half two we overtake the goals of our trip — the lighthouse on Cape Aniva! We go around him. After that we approach and land at the lighthouse. We examine the sights of the lighthouse. On the way back we admire the capes Marble and mica. During sea crossings we can meet sea lions, gulls, seals, dolphins, whales and killer whales.
