Corregidor: Japanese Garden of Peace

I know what you're thinking -- yes, I've got more Corregidor stuff to show. I haven't run out of photos yet!

As I absolutely insist that EVERYONE should think about seeing this very historical place, I'm going to show you every nook and cranny we have taken photos of until you're convinced (or maybe until y'all get fed up, whichever comes first).


Japanese Garden of Peace
This garden features a 10-foot high stone Buddha with a reflecting pool, a shinto Shrine, and other Japanese soldier memorial shrines and markers. It is also used as a praying area for Japanese war veterans and the families and relatives of Japanese soldiers who served or were killed in Corregidor during World War II. Also on display within the garden are anti-aircraft guns which are relics of the war. A small pavilion houses some Japanese memorabilia and World War II photographs. The construction of this garden was made possible through funds generated by a Japan-based private group.

It's nice playing with big guns, really.

Big gun for a big guy. Heh.

Sorry, peeps. He can't help himself.




Photobucket

Nor can I, of course.




Photobucket

Wonder if they'll still work?

Back view. I just want to put this in, don't argue.

I don't know what to do with myself sometimes, so I try and stick my head in the gun.

There's a lotta little Japanese shrines -- these are only a few.

I love this one, although it looks a little curvy.

This Buddha is massive!

Its location is also quite breathtaking.

Now, if only they've covered up them babies' bums it would've been excellent. hahaha
