Reflect on Okinawa's often violent history at Okinawa Peace Memorial Park, located on the southern tip of the island. An estimated 200,000 people died in Okinawa during one of the bloodiest battles of the war, from April to June 1945. A turn around the park provides you with a chance to observe perfectly maintained gardens leading to a series solemn monuments and the top of Peace Hill. The monumental Cornerstone of Peace lists the names of thousands of soldiers and civilians lost in the Battle of Okinawa. Be sure to step inside Peace Memorial Museum, where a detailed, sobering synopsis of the battle illuminates the severity of the war's effect on the island.

  • Beautiful park to visit. One of larger parks in okinawa. Some historical areas to visit.
  • Huge playground for kids. Still under construction but can use half of ridings
  • Very interesting to learn about ww2 and the battle of okinawa - and the events that led up to it. Video interviews with witnesses of that time are very impressive.
  • Very peaceful place. Awe inspiring
  • There were quite a lot of memorials here for both the American and Okinawans who have fought for their countries. Very peaceful and awe inspiring.
