Guam - Fifty Japanese students of Toakai-Daigaku Yamagata High School are getting a history lesson on Guam.  Peace Ring of Guam coordinator Ken Haga says the students are on island to pay respects to the victims of World War II. Their visit included a trip to the Asan Bay Overlook and a visit to the Faha Massacre site in Merizo.

Haga said, "They have to study not just the Japanese side, but also the Guamanian side because many people they sacrificed during the war."

Lawmakers also presented a resolution today commending the principal, teachers and students of the Hapanese school for their visit.
