MCCS Battlesites Tour: Battle of Okinawa Historical Society Display

Posted In: Japan with Family | okinawa

The second stop on our Battlesites Tour was the Battle of Okinawa Historical Society Display on Camp Kinser. “The museum is a volunteer only operation and maintains it’s collection from pieces donated through the generosity of veterans and private collectors, items recovered from construction sites and places of historical interest, as well as items discovered and purchased on Ebay” – OkinawaHai. The display is divided into sections representing different events during the Battle of Okinawa.

The Battle of Okinawa Historical Society Display is located on Room 232 of Building 107 in Camp Kinser. Because the museum is operated on a volunteer basis, it’s available to visit only by making an appointment or by going through the Battle Sites Tour offered by ITT Travel and Tours +.
