|Memorial at the Okinawa Peace Park|
In Japan they only teach what they want you to know with history...sound like somewhere else to you?! At any rate, people who speak out about what happened can be jailed and some have even been killed.
Next stop was Sugar Loaf. There was a lot of fighting that occurred here and eventually the 29th Marines were victorious.
Next we went to the Okinawa Park Hotel for a buffet lunch...I thought I picked up an onion ring, after biting into it I quickly learned that it was a squid ring. My bad.
The final stop was the Okinawa Peace Memorial Park. This park is huge and has outdoor memorials for each of the prefectures in Japan. It also has a National Cemetery and various other memorials for the casualties of the war.
