Saipan -- Japanese Monuments

These are monuments that the Japanese built in Saipan. They were like parks with bridges and lots of stuff. Yes made by Japanese that held the Island, I think, when the war started. In the first picture, you can see the jeep that I was issued to use to run errands, etc.
