The indigenous people of Hawaii called Pearl Harbor "Wai Momi", which means the water that is rich in pearls. It used to have a lot of pearl clams, so it was named "Pearl Harbor" because it was attacked by Japanese troops in the Second World War. The bombing has been famous since then and is currently the second largest tourist attraction in Hawaii.
In May 1962, US President Kennedy appointed the Arizona Shipwreck to be the National Cemetery, and established a white memorial on the water and underwater Arizona.
The sightseeing area itself is free to enter, but the Arizona Battleship Memorial requires tickets and 1300 free tickets are issued daily at the Visitor Center on a first come, first served basis. However, I didn't intend to go to the ship. When I got there, I closed the door and I just turned around. The War Museum is more like a patriotic education base of the US government, but as a Chinese who was deeply injured in World War II, this road to war is also very heavy. Take the war relics as the closing point of the trip to Hawaii. It doesn't seem to be perfect, but it also makes us more fortunate - born during the peace, growing up in the protection of the motherland. May you and me not be plundered or invaded when you set foot on the territory of other countries. May everyone be treated with tenderness, and resopect, to restore the peace in the world.
A large seaport in Hawaii, Pearl Harbor is flanked by mountains on three sides and faces the sea towards another. The harbor is famous around the world due to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, a well-knowned surprise attack launched by the Japanese Navy on the US Pacific Fleet during the Second World War. Now the US government has designated the place as a base for education in patriotism. You may visit the Hall of Historical Exhibition, Memorial of Fleet, and Memorial of Aviation. WWII armaments align the embankments, where many valuable objects from the war are also on display.
The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center issues an average of 1,300 free tickets to the Arizona Battleship Memorial every day. This tour is first come, first served.
