Okinawa Peace Memorial Park, Itoman

4.4
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.

  • Beauty of the Peace Memorial Park and the cruelty of war was very positive so far. It is very well to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. Children are never want to take it.

  • Okinawa Peace Memorial Park was larger than I had imagined. There was a memorial for all of the Japanese lääneille, for a total of about 50. The Park is beautiful and offers a view of the Pacific Ocean, the Red Sea or the like of which I do not remember ever seeing. The journey there was supposed to be done in two different bus. The first Leather bus terminal by bus Itomanin bus terminal and then by bus to 89 82. A pair of ten-mile trip took about an hour and a half. The price of admission to the Museum, not only was not in the Park. For the disabled area toured the golf cart looking car, with a ride costs 100 yen.

  • This place is so beautiful and peaceful. There is a strange somber air but at the same time everyone is having a very shared experience reading the names of family etc on the walls. Definitely not a place to bring kids to run crazy but a wonderful place to experience. Be sure to take time to view the beautiful tombs and memorial markets from the different towns.
  • Great view points. Interesting museum. Very hot outside on clear days
  • Learn about the history of Okinawa war. Good place to visit. Peaceful
