Funded by Japanese donors, South Pacific Memorial Park features a large, white monument with sloping spires representing hands clasped in prayer for all those who died fighting in World War II. Near the monument, you can see a path leading to the bunker network in which the Japanese commander and his men hid just before they lost control of Guam. You can also check out a Buddhist temple that now houses artifacts from the conflict.
