The museum is about the victims fromBattle of Okinawa, espcially from the sunken ship (if I am not mistaken). It's a house-like size museum, so it won't take long for you to finish. Good visual, but there is minimal English. Since it is only 20...More

The whole museum is about a Japanese ship filled with children, sunken by an American submarine during ww2. Its a video of how they found it with rov and sonar. Big tragedy and loss of many innocent school childrens life.

Initiated me to a more comprehensive understanding of the Okinawa nation and its craft skills. Workshops are wonderful and engender a genuine experience of Okinawans and their treasured skills.

This experience gives you first hand accounts of what happened to these students and teachers during the war. There's much English material, but one could benefit from having a Japanese interpreter.

This Memorial Museum is a very solemn reminder of the War in the Pacific and one that should not be missed in a tour of Okinawa. The museum and ground surrounding it are dedicated to remind the world of the tragedies of war. The area...More
