Great view. I wish there was information at the top about what happened: stories, locations, etc. Not really any markers or anything at the top.

The name speaks for itself. The absolute Horror for the indogenoous people. The power of propaganda causing mother's to jump to their death babies in their arms. The tragedy of this particular site coupled with the films they have of the jumps is chilling.

An easy car ride from the CNMI Memorial and Banzai Cliff. Scenically a visually impressive spot which suffers from overgrowth and so limits a full understanding of what happened during the retaking of Saipan. Still a visit to Saipan would not be complete without a...More

This site has numerous monuments, many in Japanese, several in English & Japanese. The view of the ocean is amazing. And heartbreaking at the same time when you learn the story. I was in awe of the beauty and power of the ocean, and moved...More
