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.

  • Place in a baseball tournament in Okinawa, but first want to visit first, the cornerstone of Peace Memorial Park and peace. Blue sky and sea, and rugged cliffs and coastline. The name of the people were sacrificed in the battle of Okinawa on the lawn of the carved stone. Once again appreciate the preciousness of peace park staff and Park bus ride for ¥ 100 is recommended.

  • Anyone should visit this place. Memorial park truly moved my feelings, I can feel the pain and sadness and I learned how men can be evil. I just want to say don't forget!
  • Somber and very well built. Each village/town has an individual memorial on the cliff line. It’s worth the extra effort to walk the gardens.
  • It was a very beautiful place and very well kept. There were 40 flights of stairs but wasn't horrible. I suggest wearing good walking shoes.
  • Beautiful place to visit. The memorial is touching and educational. All history buffs would enjoy it.
  • Beautiful park to visit. One of larger parks in okinawa. Some historical areas to visit.
