Tour Guide John Ennis told us that on August 6th and 7th 1997 the Americans and Japanese got together for a memorial service for each country - the first time this had happened and it was at the request of the Japanese. John wasn't sure the Americans would agree to the idea, but they did. He said the Japanese got very emotional and were truly happy that the Americans decided to go to their memorial service at their small memorial at the Solomon Peace Memorial Park.
