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.

The park is midway between Banzai Cliff and Suicide Cliff, where civilians terrified of the oncoming US soldiers. The post itself is in a natural cave; you have to climb multiple steps and enter through a low arched doorway cut into the cliff face. With little imagination, you sense the desperation of those final hours as the officers tried to... More

Saipan ranks as one the best places to visit for people who read about WW2 history in the pacific. From bunkers on Beach road and the WW2 museum in Garapan. Personally i like suicide and banzai cliff. Tragic history but great views. The last command post has several artifacts including a tank, and various calibre of artillery, AAA, etc. Many... More
