Welcome to Pulau Morotai
Sitting in beautiful turquoise waters, Morotai was once part of the sultanate of Ternate. The island remained obscure until World War II, when its minor Japanese base was captured by the Allies and used to bomb Manila to bits. Among the Japanese defenders who retreated to Morotai’s mountain hinterland was famous Private Nakamura: only in 1973 did he discover that the war was over.
