Last command post is very close to both banzai and suicide cliffs and on the way to the Grotto. You should pull over and make a quick stop at a minimum. Shows some of the big artillery that were used to help defend the island

Interesting spot immediately below Suicide Cliff. It was not the command post but more an island retreat for Admiral Nagato who commanded the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Historic site seeing the remains of guns and bobs left behind by Japanese. Also can explore on cave they used to hide in also.

They've done a nice job of preserving the last command post of the Japanese. I found it both fascinating and sad to learn of the war and I'm thankful history proved it to be a good thing.

Good site to see to learn about the history of Saipan and the struggles people went through during WWII. Very solemn place.

Stop here to read about the history of this end of the island. The relics are in various states of decay, but it is nice to see flowers groing out of what were once weapons of destruction!

So tragic to think of all the lives that were needlessly wasted. A good reminder of the futile nature of war
