A sacred place. I hate to say it, but the last time I was there, there was a bunch of Japanese teenagers on a tour. To say that they were being disrespectful would be an understatement. Making airplane and bomb noises, laughing etc.

Finally, a very old Japanese man started chewing them out, in Japanese. When he had finished he turned and apologized to the rest of us for their behavior. I walked away from there thinking perhaps he had been there in 1941 and he understood the respect the place deserves.
