We visited this on a whirlwind tour of the highlights of Broome. It was good to have a bus driver guide who was able to tell us a lot more about the Japanese pearl divers and how big a role they played in the early pearling industry here. The cemetery is quite large and it would have been nice to... More

A must see in Broome. So much a part of the colourful, varied and often tragic history of our north.

It was a nice quite place to visit nothing spectacular but I enjoyed going there. I would have liked a bit more information regarding the people buried there. There are a couple of plagues at the entry explaining how it financed by a Japanese business man and how it was restored.

Luckily I was able to visit this on the end of my bike trip, and wow, what interesting history to be found in this place, from the people who dived for pearls years ago.....and who's final resting place was a long way from home....well worth the visit...

Walked around admiring the workmanship on the stones but would have been nice to understand what any of it said. Site is well maintained and has a peaceful feeling with the trees and gravel. Not much shade on a hot day, maybe go morning or evening.

Whilst the Japanese cemetery is very precise in its lay out, you can not read the head stones unless you are Japanese, the surrounding cemeteries are far more interesting. One being the Chinese cemetery, whilst not large or well maintained, read the tombstones, you will find one in particular very amusing.

We enjoyed walking around the cemetery and taking in the history, I loved all the headstones and seeing how nature is continuously carving out the sandstone with the rain and wind. I wish I understood Japanese so I could read a bit more about the people that are buried there. It’s a shame that so many people lost their lives... More

The history behind this Cemetery is incredible, the support for the rectification works is nothing short of brilliantly mapped out. I was very lucky to catch onto Doug Fong from REFLECTIONS B&B - Doug has an unbelievable wealth of Broome knowledge having been born in Broome some 77 years ago.
