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.
December 7 this year is the 76th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor incident. Travel to Hawaii will visit Pearl Harbor. The Pearl Harbor Memorial Hall consists of two parts: the exhibition hall of the port and the memorial hall at sea. There is also a cinema in the exhibition hall of the port. The cinema has been playing a film every half hour for decades. The audience should be the first historical documentary in the world. No smoking, no snacks, no noise and solemnity are allowed during the viewing. The order was maintained by American sailors, because the entire Pearl Harbor Memorial was administered by the military. Tourists queued up to go to the cinema to watch the film. The entrance of the cinema is in the exhibition hall of the port, and the exit of the cinema goes directly to the wharf behind the exhibition hall. Pay attention to tourists wearing wreaths around their necks. The ground guide says they are relatives or friends of the victims of Pearl Harbor. Because of the great victory of Japan in Pearl Harbor incident, it has become a miracle in the history of war, especially in the history of naval war, and has been paid attention and studied by military experts. Documents about the Pearl Harbor incident are displayed at the entrance of the exhibition hall. A retired civilian general was signing his books.
Pearl Harbor is on the west side of Honolulu Airport. There are buses at the airport. The traffic is very convenient. The Arizona Memorial is free to visit, but the number of visitors per day is limited. You can make an online booking, but a $1.5 handling fee will be charged for each ticket. The free tickets will be collected from 7:00 a.m. in the queue. Since Pearl Harbor is still a military base, bags are not allowed to be taken when visiting. They should be deposited in a depository for $5 each. Cameras, mobile phones and wallets can be brought in. If there are many odds and ends, transparent plastic bags can be requested to be packed and brought into the garden with you. First, I saw a documentary about Pearl Harbor in the theatre. Then I took a boat to surround the Arizona Memorial Hall. Because there was a crack in the berth, I can't boarding the memorial hall now. I can only look out on the boat. It's a pity. Looking at the harbor area, you can also see other ships and submarines moored here, and enjoy your eyes.
First stop to the United States: Pearl Harbor. Located in the southwest of Oahu Island, Hawaii, it is the largest natural harbor in Hawaii, surrounded by mountains on three sides and facing the sea on one side. Historically, it is well known that during World War II, the Japanese launched military raids in Pearl Harbor, causing heavy casualties in the United States, and the Pacific War broke out. The attack eventually involved the United States in World War II. These histories are now displayed in Pearl Harbor. The United States government has designated Pearl Harbor as a base for patriotic education. Tourist guides in the scenic area are volunteers, including many disabled veterans.
At World War II sites, Oahu Island is supposed to go to Pearl Harbor anyway. It is suggested to either go early or go late, otherwise the parking space is very tight, of course, there will be seats later. Free USS Arizona Memorial tickets are available at ticket. On the left hand, queue up before the time above. On the right hand are museums and submarine submarines. You need to pay. Remember that the ticket is $15 for adults, two souvenir stores and a wide range of goods are all related to the Pearl Harbor incident. When you go to USS, you can see a short film first. Through the film, you can get a more intuitive understanding of the history of the Pacific War. You can also see the ruins of that year by sailing a yacht. The whole process lasts about 2-3 hours.
Pearl Harbor is really too beautiful and beautiful. Pearl Harbor in the Pacific Ocean is the main hub of transportation. Hawaii is between 2000 and 3000 nautical miles from the west coast of the United States to the east, Japan to the islands to the west, Alaska to the north and Bering Strait to the north. Airplanes crossing the Pacific Ocean from south to north take Hawaii as a continuation station.
Pearl Harbor is the base and shipbuilding base of the U.S. Navy. Most people know this place because of the sudden bombing by Japanese aircraft during World War II. Then President Roosevelt declared that the U.S. entered the war and became the turning point of World War II. On its deck, General MacArthur accepted Japan's unconditional surrender, ending World War II. Pearl Harbor on the left is to see the ferry terminal of the Arizona. In the middle is the entrance to the tourist service center. Free tickets are also collected here. Tickets to the Missouri are also bought here. There are submarines to visit on the right, and a ferry station to the Missouri is off the coast on the right. I took my son on a trip to Hawaii last summer and visited Pearl Harbor. Fortunately, we were reminded to go early, otherwise we might not be able to get in.
When you go to Hawaii, you must visit Pearl Harbor, where there are indelible memories for people all over the world. After viewing the documentary of the Pearl Harbor incident at the Visitors'Center, I took a boat trip to the Memorial Hall of the US warship Arizona, which is located above the Aquatic Arizona (the translated name of the Chinese material provided by the Visitors' Center). Some of the damaged Arizona is still exposed to the water. There are floating oil marks on the water. The tour guide told us that this is a slow seepage from the tank of the warship, called Arizona's tears. Decades have passed and it is said that it can seep to 100 years. Feeling like this is the best metaphor, let Arizona's 100-year tears help us remember that period of history and those lost lives.
Pearl Harbor has a beautiful scenery and a long history and culture, so it is worth visiting. You can get there directly by bus No. 8. I bought three package tickets for the submarine Boffin, the battleship Missouri and the Pacific War Museum on the spot. There were Chinese-speaking service personnel on the spot to guide the purchase of tickets. The interpreter pays an additional $7. After the visit, the Boffin went to Missouri by ferry, then to the Pacific War Hall by ferry, and then to Pearl Harbor by ferry.
Speaking of Hawaii, most people must be more familiar with Pearl Harbor, a famous historical event, which is also a place to punch in. Traffic is also convenient, bus can arrive, self-driving is also convenient. Around 10 o'clock, there are still some parking spaces. The parking space at noon is rather tight. It is suggested that we go early. In addition, free tickets for Alexander also need to go early. Otherwise, it will be released soon.
Pearl Harbor is located at the southern end of Oahu Island in the Hawaiian Islands. It is the base of the U.S. Pacific Navy Fleet. The first day we went to Pearl Harbor was the anniversary of the death of American soldiers. The flag of Pearl Harbor was lowered at half-mast to mourn the death of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
