The inscriptions on the monument were written by Manzanar's Buddhist minister Rev. Shinjo Nagatomi. The three characters on the front or east side of the memorial literally translate as "soul consoling tower". On the back or west side the left hand column reads "Erected by the Manzanar Japanese," the right hand column "August 1943."
