  • At the extreme south-east part of Tinian, the area is home to ocean, cliffs, and shrines to those who died here. A very peaceful setting today.  more »
  • Also on the island of Tinian was committed suicide from the Japanese population on the island. On 1 August 1944, many jumped out of this rock instead of letting himself captured by the American troops.
