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.

Points of Interest[edit]

A Japanese Garden was created by residents, complete with rock gardens and small pond. It has a sign in Japanese saying "Kuroki Japanese Gardens." On the western edge of town there is a small Ukrainian Orthodox church and St. Helena Cemetery. The grain elevator still stands in good condition but has been purchased and is now owned privately.
