Okinawa Prefectural Peace Memorial Museum (Peace Memorial Park)

Area

Okinawa Prefectural Peace Memorial Museum

The Okinawa Prefectural Peace Memorial Museum is located at Okinawa Peace Memorial Park, the largest war memorial in Okinawa. The images of war and model exhibits constitute an appeal for everlasting peace. The museum exhibits are divided up into five separate areas that cover the history of Okinawa leading up to WWII, the Battle of Okinawa (three areas concentrate on the battle), and the postwar period in which Okinawa was transformed under U.S. military occupation into the so-called “Keystone of the Pacific.” There is also an exhibit specifically for children to teach them about the importance of human life and to try and cultivate within them a desire for peace in the future.
