  • Peaceful place tucked away high on the Urasoe hills. There's not much to see, but I'm sure a guided tour would be better regarding information. There are a few signs around that explain the sites. This location also has Hacksaw Ridge. Wheelchair access is restricted to the fee paved areas.
  • Lots of signs in Japanese and English that describe the sites and their historical significance. There is even a sign that mentions the movie Hacksaw Ridge that was about the battle that took place here in WWII.
