A walk to Mabuni
I take a walk several days a week, either on the beach near my home or to Mabuni Hill which is just a few minutes away and is next to Okinawa Peace Memorial Park. The walk to Mabuni also takes me past the cave where the remnants of the Japanese 32nd Army made their headquarters at the very end of the Battle of Okinawa in June 1945. It’s such a beautiful and tranquil setting nowadays that it’s hard to imagine the horrors that went on here on the south coast of the island at that time.
Here are some photos taken on today’s walk:
