Zhijiang surrender Memorial Hall where Japanese formally surrendered to the Chinese government
Sep 2017 • Friends
On August 15th, 1945, the Japanese declared unconditional surrender to the Chinese Kuomintang government. The signing of the official surrender documents took place over August 21st to 23rd, in Zhijiang. The rooms where the signing took place still contain the same furniture that existed at the time of signing.

This was an important Chinese headquarters for the resistance against the Japanese invading forces. In addition to the Chinese military headquarters here, the Soviet Aid-to-China Air Force and the USA’s Flying Tigers had headquarters here.

A good place to visit and reflect on the ravages of war. Per Wikipedia. Total deaths in WW II by country include China with 15 to 20 million; Japan with 2.5 to 3.1 million; the Soviet Union with 20 to 27 million; and, the USA with 419,400. Thus the people of China and the Soviet Union bore the greatest loss and suffering.

There are lots of photos and displays of WW II military equipment. Much of the signage is in both Chinese and English.

I note that on TripAdvisor headings, the city name is sometimes spelled as “Zhejiang,” (example, Zhejiang Provincial Museum).

China's Tokyo bay
Oct 2016 • Couples
japan didn't just surrender in Tokyo bay they sent delegates through out the pacific theater.. these delegates were treated,,,,,rather poorly
as in the case when japan's reps arrived at this very spot to surrender troops an territory... they feared for their very lives
the surrender hall is a fitting tribute to the American an Chinese forces that fought side by side toward a common goal
hundreds of exhibits ranging from documents to war materials
including the original building an furnishings where the surrender took place
if your into the history of WW II this is a must see
