Driving around Okinawa we found the Peace Memorial Park. How beautiful, located in the southern part of the island. It had several gardens within.

Its very far from Naha. But its worth it. Its great to understand what people had to lived at that time and how uchinanchu had to survive. Thats why they always are looking for peace in the world. 300 yen
