Location of Kuroki in Saskatchewan

Kuroki is a hamlet in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It was named after the Japanese general Kuroki Tamemoto. Listed as a designated place by Statistics Canada, the hamlet had a population of 65 in the Canada 2006 Census.[1]

History[edit]

As an interesting aside, this village was founded after the Japanese had won several victories in the war against Russia (Russo-Japanese War 1904-05). Britain was allied with Japan in this war and Japan was a very popular nation throughout the British Empire. Three towns in Saskatchewan were named along the CN line in memory of the Japanese achievements in this war: Mikado, Togo and Kuroki.
