Iturup is the largest island in Russia’s southern Kurils, located directly to the north of Hokkaido, Japan. Iturup consists of volcanic massifs and mountain ridges. The mountains are covered with birch and Siberian Dwarf Pine scrub, herbaceous flowers or bare rocks. The shores of the island are high and abrupt and is marked by white pumice cliffs and black hexagonal pillars.
