The Okinawa Peace Hall

In the Second World War, the last fierce battle took place in Okinawa. Men and women of all ages were tossed into the war and more than 200,000 precious lives of soldiers and civilians were lost. With the Okinawan people's intense wish of 'No more war', the Okinawa Peace Hall was opened on Oct. 1, 1978. The Hall stands on the Hill of Mabuni where history bears testimony to the futility of war and the value of peace. The Hall has a regular polygonal roof with septilateral pyramid, which expresses seven seas and the shape of hands joined in prayers. Transcending race, nationality, ideology and religion, the Hall has been sending peace messages all over the world.
