I would like to travel, alone, Kamchatka-Kurils-Hokkaido at the end of Sept-Oct. I speak Russian and have done quite some extreme travels before. Most of the sites refer to the non-Hokkaido route:
- Vladivostok-main land Japan;
- Sakhalin to Wakanai (Hokkaido).
They indicate that the ferries stop sometime late summer.
Is the route from Kamchatka to Japan via Kuril islands possible?
There should be occasional ferries/fishing boats from Kamchatka to Severo-Kurisk, other Kuril islands all the way to the Yuzhno-Kurilsk and then to Japan.
I was in Shiretoko in the winter and saw that many Russians come there somehow.
But how, is it only during the summer?
