Although quite difficult to get to via public transportation (suggest you have a car, if possible), it's worth every minute. Great, and graphic, overview of WWII's impact on the Okinawan people, I walked away with considerable additional knowledge on the topic, and most-importantly from a...More

I'd love to give this place a 3:5 as it was more than just average but not quite very good. The view the memorial Park overlooks is stunning however and it is humbling to all those who died's names on the stones. The water fountain...More

This is the 3rd leg of our day 1 tour. The place hopefully remind people that there are no winners in wars, only casualties - more than 200,000 people perished in Okinawa alone. This place reminds me of Corregidor back home......

You can make it, but make sure you include ShuriCastke to visit. The Peace Park is open and spacious so when on site, move quickly or you will spend your whole time there. Good luck
