Okinawa Peace Memorial Park, Itoman

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.
