  • We stopped by for a round-the-island tour. On August 11, 1944, the former Japanese Military Command was wiped out. A quiet place with peace temple and a 15-meter-high memorial tower. The white memorial tower is inspired by the hand that is palmed. There was also a monument to Prime Minister Shigeru Yoshida on the right. The flag of Guam, the United States, and Japan is flying. There was a place to see more (when you go down the stairs across from Heiwa-ji Temple, and the caves decided by Lieutenant General Hidera Obata and 60 or more generals, tanks where the Japanese army stored drinking water, etc.), the guide of the Japanese guide that has finished here is regrettable.

  • It is a war memorial monument that Japan and the United States cooperated in the call of the local priest. There was a temple called the Peace Temple on the site, and the write messages and the thousand cranes of the school excursion students were dedicated. There were also some visitors who were away from the tourist spots, but I had a moment to think about the people who had left their homeland and sacrificed.
