It should be the next stop after visiting the American Memorial Park. Anyone even remotely interested in WWII history would appreciate it, it helped that I visited the Memorial Park prior to appreciate it more. As a Korean, it was nice to see the Korean Peace Memorial right next to it also.

Guns & tanks and a rock carved post in excellent condition. Great place to walk around and kill time and let kids run around and expend that energy! Uphill 3 Mille run from here to suicide cliff on paved jogging path. The shade provided by trees makes it a doable run mid-day

This is where the American army fought with the Japanese until the Japanese surrendered to the American toop. This is the last command post of the American troop in this island. The old canons and guns and other war equipment are in good condition laying on the battle ground.

This review is quite late. The Last Command Post Park is usually combined with a trip to the Banzai Cliff. There is a huge board/landmark that gives a brief information about the site. Original war machines left from WWII are still in tact. This is a "must see" attraction if you love war history.

We visited this site after Bonzai Cliff. You may want to stop here first before turning to Bonzai Cliff only to appreciate the Japanese stance and battle positions and then see where they ran in defeat to commit suicide. Original machinery is still intact; the cave where they dug in still has scorch marks; but all encircled by blooming trees... More

Wonderful, historic site which can be reached by climbing steps or by a ramped pathway. You can actually step inside the bunker and explore. Holes from bombs all around. Also war equipment on the lawn.

Very interesting if you are interested in WWII history. Highly recommend. There is a park here at the base of Suicide Cliff with a beautiful garden, winding paths, tropical birds and beautiful stone monuments from both Japan and Korea.

Absolutely beautiful, ironic considering it shows the weapons of war. The flame trees were in full bloom.

If you love World War II history, and want to know more about the final stages of the Battle of Saipan between US And Imperial Japanese forces, then a trip to the Last Command Post is a must see. There is an opportunity to see World War II-era guns and ordinance, see the cave which served as the last Japanese... More

Great rest stop on northern Saipan central to the Grotto, Suicide and Bansai cliffs, the war memorials, and Bird Island lookout. Plan to relax and view the WWII relics left from the Battle of Saipan or hop on the bike in a great place to ride.
