Okinawa Kenritsu Heiwa Kinen Shiryokan (Okinawa Prefectural Peace Prayer Museum)

In World War II, Okinawa was the only part of Japan to experience fighting on the ground, and not only soldiers but also a great many civilians were sacrificed in the battle for the islands. Okinawa Kenritsu Heiwa Kinen Shiryokan (The Okinawa Prefectural Peace Prayer Museum) was established to perpetuate the memory of this tragic experience of war and to preserve this lesson in history properly for future generations. The Heiwa-no Ishiji (Cornerstone of Peace) is inscribed with the name of everyone who lost their lives in the battle for Okinawa. This is not just a memorial but a place designed to make visitors understand the value of peace above all else. It is also a place for children, who are to lead the next generation, to study and take an interest in peace issues.
