Japanese Garden of Peace in Corregidor
One of the few stops in your Corregidor tour would be the Japanese Garden of Peace, also located at the tail side of the island.
It is said to be funded by the Japanese Government in memories of the late soldiers; may it be Filipino, American or Japanese killed on the island during the World War II. Grave markers with Japanese inscriptions can be seen from this area. The park includes a prayer area, shrines, and pavilion that houses photographs and memorabilas.
Japanese Garden of Peace also symbolizes the peace and friendship of Japan and the Philippines. From there, you can see an aircraft guns on the hill’s edge looking out to the sea, and not so far from the area is a Buddha monument that stand as a fertility idol for those who want to bear a child.
It is also considered to be merely a praying area for Japanese families who lost their kins during the war. With a 10 minute given stop in the area, visitors usually take a pause and reminisce the valor of the soldiers.
