The South Shetland Islands were first discovered by an expedition led by the Russian explorer van Bellinghausen on his ships "Vostov" and "Mirnyi" in 1920Panoramic view from the top of Barrientos Island
Barrientos Island is part of the Aitcho Archipelago.... the name is not Japanese, but comes from HO, the shortcut for the British Hydrological Office....
