Himeyuri-no-to is the cenotaph which stands in the trace of a trench where Okinawa army hospital third surgery was put in the battle in Okinawa last years. It was unveiled on April 7, 1946. There are “tower” and a name, but the fruit plants aren’t so high by tens of centimeters of height. The person who goes and worship doesn’t cease even at present as the one which symbolizes severity of the battle in Okinawa and misery.
