The Poor Girl Didn't Have to Kill Herself
This statue is a monument to Hando-Gwaa, a girl who fell in love with the wrong guy.
After the fact, she found out the dude was married.
So, she climbed up Mt. Tatchū (タッチュー) and hanged herself with her long hair.
The statue is in Shimamuraya Tourist Park.

Now, I know Okinawan parents use this monument to teach children lessons.
But, I'll put my thoughts in simple English for everyone to read.
