Its been raining so much here lately, but last weekend, we finally had a sunny day and decided to take advantage of it and visit the park. Peaceful was truly the best word to describe it - perfectly landscaped lawns with rows of flowers and Bonsai trees, people having picnics while kids flew kites on large lawns that stretched out in front of towering monuments dedicated to those who lost their lives... They even had rows and rows of stone walls, covered in the names of Japanese and Americans who were killed in the war. It was definitely a serene and memorable place - we will have to go back sometime and visit the museum as well.
The Cornerstone of Peace - this was erected to mark the 50th anniversary of the end of the Battle of Okinawa and WWII. It is a place to remember those who lost their lives as well as to pray for world peace.
After visiting the Peace Park, we explored down by the cliffs a little more:
