Collection of facilities for renewal and maintenance of unique monument of the Japane
 
A lighthouse Aniva has high historical and cultural value for an island Sakhalin. Built yet by Japaneses, he served long years for the good of man. But the last thirty years, this unique architectural monument collapses nature. And only a man can save him. We ask all not indifferent people to help us to recover a lighthouse, save it as an element of cultural heritage and memory about the Japanese rule on south Sakhalin.

The lighthouse Aniva or Mys Aniva Lighthouse, formally known as Naka Shiretoko Saki, was built by Japan in 1939. It sits on a rock off the cape of the south-east fork of the island of Sakhalin and it’s thought that the lighthouse is radioactive. Sakhalin is 950 km long and located between the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk. It belonged to Russia in 1875, before the Mys Aniva half of the island fell to Japan in 1905 only to be reclaimed by Russia again after World War II.

The lighthouse was designed by Shinobu Miura and was originally manned, which is evident from the ransacked remains of the crew quarters, kitchen and radio room found within the tower’s seven floors.

However, after 1945, Soviet Russia allegedly replaced the Diesel engines with a radioisotopethermoelectric generator and adapted the mercury-assisted pendulum system so that the lighthouse could run by itself. Aniva is only one of several lighthouses along La Pérouse Strait, a relatively narrow and treacherous sea passage between Sakhalin and the Japanese island of Hokkaidō. La Pérouse Strait (Proliv Laperuza in Russian and Sōya Kaikyō in Japanese) is named after the French explorer who chartered it in the late eighteenth century.
