Efforts by US Marine translators to convince the Japanese people not to jump proved fruitless. Approximately 1,000 Japanese civilians committed suicide in the last days of the battle to take the offered privileged place in the afterlife (offered by Emperor Hirohito). Bother Suicide Cliff and Banzai Cliff have peace memorials and monuments honoring those who died.OPTIONAL: AN AMAZING PRIVATE COLLECTION:Saipan native, Fabian Indalecio, does all of this collecting as his passion and finances it all from his own resources. You'll see dozens of guns, helmets, shell casings, propellers, flame throwers and much, much more that Fabian has collected since the 1990s! It's the only Battle of Saipan collection known to exist.
