Do you have any information about the Joetsu Peace Park dedicated to remember the WW II POW camp at Naoetsu?

Not sure how close this is to Tokyo or Kyoto., which I'll be visiting. But if you visited the peace park, what was your experience?

I haven't been to the museum, but Naoetsu is about 152 minutes if you take the JR Hokuriku Shinkansen "Hakutaka" service from Tokyo, and change at Joetsu-Myoko Station for Ltd Exp Shirayuki or Myoko Haneuma Line local. It's a 15 min, 1.5 km walk from Naoetsu Staition, but you may take a short taxi ride (should come around less than 1,000 yen).
