일본군 최후 사령부라고 불리우는 이 곳은 세계 2차대전 당시 썼던 전차나 화기들을 전시해 놓은 야외 전시관으로 현재 미국 국립공원 관리국에서 관리하고 있다. 깎아지는 절벽 중간에 위치한 지휘소와 동굴처럼 좁은 입구로 들어가면 나오는 콘크리트 벙커다. 이 곳에서 불과 50m 떨어져 있는 한국인 위령탑에 잠시 들러 애꿎게도 이곳까지 끌려와 전사한 수많은 선조들... more »Called the Last Command of the Japanese Army, it is an open-air exhibition displaying tanks and firearms used during the Second World War and is now managed by the U.S. National Park Service. It is a concrete bunker that enters the narrow entrance, which is located in the middle of a carved cliff. It is also a place where you can stop by the Korean Tower, just 50 meters away, and mourn for the many ancestors who were taken to the area and killed.
Excellent site to visit. However, the non Japanese tourists need to have more respect for this monument! Pick up your garbage folks!
Beautiful outdoor memorial. Lots of interesting tanks, cannons, and miscellaneous remnants. Interesting stairway leading up, around the side, and down the back end of what was used as a hiding bunker and looks like the back wall was blown out. Small gravel parking area across the street, which runs right in front of the park. The Last Command Post and the Okinawa Peace Memorial are side by side, all part of the same park. In front of the Okinawa Peace Memorial - a large open concrete platform - we saw a group of Asian visitors meditating and honoring an extended moment of silence, which was beautiful, peaceful and fitting, versus some of the other scenic points nearby with sad histories, in which tourists flocked to take selfies.
