Historical Sites

South Pacific Memorial Peace Park

This now-peaceful park was the site of one of the bloodiest battles in the closing days of World War II. This was the site of the last Japanese garrison under the command of General Obata. In a desperate fight with American forces in 1944, General Obata was killed trying to maintain control of Guam. The park was set aside in memory of the more than half million Japanese soldiers as well as American soldiers and local people who lost their lives in the Pacific War between 1941 and 1945. It symbolizes the determination of the two nations to promote friendship and seek world peace. A 15 meter-high tower is a representation of hands praying for eternal peace.

Mount Santa Rosa

This extinct volcano is surrounded by an elevated coral formation. From this site there are spectacular views of the northern plateau, dense limestone forests and Andersen Air Force Base. On a clear day, you can see the island of Rota to the north.
