Liz and I traveled north along Broadway today to see some old WWII sites. The first site we came across was an old Japanese Communications Center. After the war, they seem to have used the building for processing cattle--at least it had all the signs of a slaughter house. It even had a special drain labeled 'blood'. We spent about an hour in this large building, as Liz took pictures.
Next, we followed the road north to the NKK Shrine. The Na'yo Kohatsu Kaisha company developed sugar plantations on Tinian before the war, and built this shrine after the war to honor the dead.
Next came the Shinto American Memorial. This was a Japanese shrine the Americans rebuilt after the war to honor both American and Japanese soldiers killed in the battle for Tinian.
As we drove back south, we found another site we had missed--a Japanese defense trail that ran along the hillside and past several fortified caves the Japanese had used during the war.
