Nuchi du takara

So this week we visited Peace Prayer Park, it is a stunningly beautiful park. Knowing what the Okinawans endured during the battle of Okinawa it really has a somber type feeling. It overlooks "suicide cliffs," as the name implies many civilians jumped to their deaths during the battle of Okinawa.

The names of all who died are on these slabs.

These big nasty spiders were all over the walking path!
