Tour to "Hacksaw Ridge" & More War Historic Sites!


The battle of Okinawa was the longest, bloodiest and the largest sea-land-air in American history. That is how American people describe the battle. Okinawan describe it as "the typhoon of steel and bombs!" About one in four Okinawan people perished their lives. Join me, a history-loving local guide, on my tour around the war historic sites.
