An emotional place.

This is a memorial to the Japanese dead. Manu who were killed were put in mass graves,and later burried here. There is an almost hallowed feeling.

The location you have set here is wrong. The place it's located at is north, in the village of Yigo. It's a place where the Japanese tourist go on the memorial of the II World War. There are groups that come from Japan every year to present flowers. If your looking to go around the island to see the war... More

This is privately owned WWII memorial site, and is more from the Japanese perspective. The location was basically the last organized Japanese command site before the Americans pushed the rest of the way through. A short way down a walking path, you will see the bunkers the Japanese command held out before taking their own lives. The memorial chapel also... More

Was there on a Friday afternoon. Grounds were open, but the buildings/exhibits were closed. Seems to be a collection of monuments by various groups, but not with a coherent master plan. Forlorn with describe it best.

If you are in the area, you should visit this touching memorial. I found the site to be quite moving.

We arrived here 30 minutes after the 1700 closing time and the caretaker was just about to close up for the day. In typical Guam fashion, he told us to go ahead and explore and to just lock up when we left. The grounds were older but well kept and we enjoyed our short visit.

Used to come here all the time when I was a kid. The caves are fun to explore. The bamboo forest is awe inspiring and eerie. There is a mini museum with WWII stuff. No charge, but feel free to make a donation.

There are excellent views of the island from the lookouts at the park. In addition, there are excellent memorials.

Can be difficult to see signage from Marine Corps Drive but worth looking for. This is a free park to visit. Memorial was well done and easy to navigate. Take the time to hike down the steps and/or the trail to the man-made caves formerly occupied by Japanese forces during World War II.

This is actually in Yigo, not Agana as the website states. It is a lovely memorial to WWII and visitors can peruse some Japanese artificts from the period, as well as hike to some of the caves the Japanese used to hide out, including the one the officer in charge commuted suicide in. There is no cost to visit and... More
