Academic information
Approximately 60,000 Okinawans settled in the South Sea Pacific Mandate (Islands of Micronesia, such as Saipan, Tinian, Parao, Ponape) before the Pacific War, but 12,826 of them lost their life during the war. From donations of survivors, the monument was built in December, 1963, for the repose for the souls of those who died during their development.
