I was station in Okinawa from July '03 to Sept '05 and I drove around the island quite a bit. There is a lot of breathtaking scenery all over and if your an avid scuba diver you will find plenty of spots to explore. This island has lot of history which can be turbulent at times. This is the site of the bloodiest battle of World War 2 in the Pacific. While you enjoy the sights and activities of the island get an understanding of their history so it will give you a better insight about its people. This island offers a lot from breathtaking scenery , to beautiful beaches, delicious cuisine and of course history.
For additonal pics make sure to check my travelogues.
Located in the southen Okinawa, this park was built to honor those who perished in the Batlle of Okinawa. This place is very serene and offers a wonderful view of the ocean. The Okinawans erected this memorial to honor their loved ones and also to symbolize peace that they hope spread around all over the world so incidents that took place in this island never happen again.
the date of for the construction of this castle is unknown but the oldest remains of the structure at the site are from the 14th century.
