The grounds are extensive. Go early in the hot months. You can get a tour by cart for 100 yen per person. The museum is part of the facility.

It's a beautiful and moving place which remembers all those lost in the battle from all sides of the conflict. You can visit the memorial museum and peace hall, or wander through the monuments to people from different prefectures and groups who were killed, while...More

This park really does have history, memorials and great views all in one place. Spectacular ocean views along solemn burial grounds. Great place to spend an afternoon walk and appreciate Okinawan history.

This is the 3rd leg of our day 1 tour. The place hopefully remind people that there are no winners in wars, only casualties - more than 200,000 people perished in Okinawa alone. This place reminds me of Corregidor back home......

You can make it, but make sure you include ShuriCastke to visit. The Peace Park is open and spacious so when on site, move quickly or you will spend your whole time there. Good luck
