Such a tragic story...however we need to remember lest we repeat. So sad to know that thousands of people even civilians gave up their own lives here out of fear and the order of their emperor. Well done memorial.

Really a nice view that you can see the nice view of pacific ocean. However, that's so fxxking hot and there is no cover you can find to escape from the sunshine. You must get tainted.

This place obviously plays an important role in Saipan's past. The views from up top are magnificent--especially on the road down when you get a fantastic view of the west coast of Saipan and the reef. Views of the cliff from below are impressive as...More

You get a great view from the lookout and a sobering glimpse of a lesser known part of WWII. The lookout looks over Bonzai cliff. I recommend seeing Bonzai first and then seeing Suicide cliff to see it from a different perspective

Here with a tour group. Very sacred environment. Hard to believe that mothers and their children jumped to their death from this cliff.

This is worth the car ride up to the top. Or, if you are crazy, cycle it! Tghe view is excellent and the little pieces of history come together even more once you have seen a number of places.

The drive up to the cliff is beautiful and when you get to the top of the cliff, there isn't much to see but you can view the edge of the island and its beautiful ocean. A good place to hike for few miles.
