A sad moment in history

It's hard to stand here and not think about what happened here. It's a beautiful spot with a great view, but the dark history makes it a place for solemn, silent introspection... read more

Heading up to the cliffs after visiting the museum in garapan was the best idea. It gives you a deeper perspective and really soaks you up into the reality that was ww2. About 8thousand people jumped off of these cliffs to commit suicide. Seeing the sheer cliffs is just gut wrenching to imagine so many lives lost here. If you... More

This place is just a sight to see. Once you get to the top, you will appreciate the view that Saipan has to offer! Also, there is a great historic story about this place, so it is very exciting site!

A lot of history and the view was great. See from below first and then go up. Some memorials but needs some work as it has been hit by bad weather.

The site is rich in history but quite boring to be honest. Since Siapan is a small island, might as well visit it. You have to pee in the forest as well should you need to go...

So this is not a developed historical site. This is a moving location where you can reflect of significance of the events that occurred. If history is lost on you then you can just enjoy the view....

It's hard to stand here and not think about what happened here. It's a beautiful spot with a great view, but the dark history makes it a place for solemn, silent introspection Drive up here on a clear night, and see more stars than you imagined possible. Watch out for ghosts, though. They're everywhere.

Scenery is alright, nothing spectacular about the cliff, except for the history that haunted the location. The blue sky and scenic view of the ocean does make this place a little more pleasant. In the most Northern part of Saipan. About 15 minutes drive from city centre.

The Suicide cliff is accessible by paved road - Rte 322 from the Middle road, by car, bicycle or walking. From the top, the whole north part of Saipan can be seen.

This is a cliff from which many civilians jumped to their death when the US took the island of Saipan. The Japanese had told them that the US military would treat them very badly. They were scared and preferred to die, so jumped both from this inland cliff and from Banzai Cliff which is at the edge of the ocean.... More
