  • Japan, which has a slightly different history of the Mainland and the perception if you want to know the tragic history of Okinawa visit. Well I'm sure you can read the Korean experience. Outdoor scenery of cliffs of well-kept trails Bush. ..

  • There was worth going even know the history of Okinawa from the Ryukyus will differ from the atomic bomb damage of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Acre is engraved the name of each victim on the Veterans Memorial, got me thinking about the defense and rage.

  • On several occasions, I have visited this location, primarily, for photography. Inside the museum, photography is not permitted. The entire acreage, surrounding the site is quiet and peaceful. There are grim reminders of the effects of war and, a day tour, of this entire complex, would be a great requirement for all Americans, visiting the island. About one third of the population, of this island, was wiped out during WWII, some by Japanese forces and some by American fire. Collateral damage, would be the terminology, in today's language. Visit and, feel the pain.
  • Must see if you visit Okinawa, particularly if you are American military stationed here. It should give you a better impression of the relationship between the U.S., Japan, and Okinawa as you better understand the history and battle that was fought here in World War II.
  • Beautiful, scenic, quiet and gigantic area to explore. I would recommend visiting.
  • Spent the whole afternoon here. Moving memorial.
  • This is a "must see" if you are visiting Okinawa. First and foremost the park itself is a beautiful place for a long relaxing walk. However, the museum itself provides a look into the history of what happened here in Okinawa. If visiting please allow an entire day to experience the entire park. English is available (as are some other languages).
