Quite a place to visit as it is full with history. But they could really put in some more effort to clean the place as it started to look really run down!

The Last Command Post Park is always a must-visit every time you're in Saipan. As the relics age and become one with the earth, visitors -- and residents, too -- should make the time to go there every chance that they get.

This is on the road if you’re heading to bonsai memorial cliff or suicide cliff. It has really cool old tanks and guns. You can also crawl in this bunker that was in the rock cliff. It has some parking, not a lot. And goats...More

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

After the American Memorial, this is the place you need to go. I wish there were plaques that gave more information, but even without them, you can kind of figure things out. Make sure you go up the steps and into the command and control...More

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.

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.
