Help Agency: “The Day of the Northern Territories” is celebrated in Japan on February 7 - on the anniversary of the signing of the Simodsk treatise 1855 of the year, according to which Kunashir, Shikotan, Iturup and Habomai moved to Japan. Japan claims these islands, citing the bilateral Treatise on Trade and the Borders of the 1855 of the Year.
