  • Saipan offers an amazing outdoor museum on WWII iostory and relics. This site is last command post with bunker and artillery rusting away. Surrounding area are the Korean and Okinawan peace memorials....  more »
  • Called the Last Command of the Japanese Army, it is an open-air exhibition displaying tanks and firearms used during the Second World War and is now managed by the U.S. National Park Service. It is a concrete bunker that enters the narrow entrance, which is located in the middle of a carved cliff. It is also a place where you can stop by the Korean Tower, just 50 meters away, and mourn for the many ancestors who were taken to the area and killed.

  • Excellent site to visit. However, the non Japanese tourists need to have more respect for this monument! Pick up your garbage folks!
  • Beautiful outdoor memorial. Lots of interesting tanks, cannons, and miscellaneous remnants. Interesting stairway leading up, around the side, and down the back end of what was used as a hiding bunker and looks like the back wall was blown out. Small gravel parking area across the street, which runs right in front of the park. The Last Command Post and the Okinawa Peace Memorial are side by side, all part of the same park. In front of the Okinawa Peace Memorial - a large open concrete platform - we saw a group of Asian visitors meditating and honoring an extended moment of silence, which was beautiful, peaceful and fitting, versus some of the other scenic points nearby with sad histories, in which tourists flocked to take selfies.
