Sugar King Park

Katori Jinja Shrine at Sugar King Park.
Sugar King Park has beautiful moss covered trees, picnic tables and Japanese shrines. One of the trains that carried the sugarcane around the island is permanently parked at the front of the park. You will also find a large statue of the Japanese sugar king himself. The statue is riddled with bullet holes from the Battle of Saipan in World War II. The park has the Katori Jinja shrine built in 1911, destroyed in 1944 and rebuilt in 1985. There is also a 20 minute nature trail winding through the forest and around a large hill.
