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


The battle of Okinawa was the longest, bloodiest and the largest sea-land-air in the Pacific War. 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Kumiko-San is an amazing tour guide. She provided many insights and so much information. She really made history come alive for our family. It was so nice to have her along and she not only provided information about our WWII tour but also about the area and culture as well. She also took us to an amazing place for lunch. It was a fantastic meal of local Okinawan cuisine at a very quiet and peaceful restaurant on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean. It was such a beautiful, unforgettable restaurant!
