Japanese Stone Marker

Manolo Fortich is a home of several historical artifacts, one of these is the Japanese Stone Marker which indicates the graves of high-ranking Japanese Officials killed during World War II. The elliptical one by two feet stone bears two Japanese inscriptions which translated as “On this spot died Miyazaki Yoshitoi, Chief of Army” and “Emperor Chiao” in addition to the English inscription which reads “In memory of Kaji Battalion, May 8, 1942”.

The stone marker was said to be located at Tankulan, Manolo Fortich adjacent to the Public Plaza but unfortunately it could no longer be found.
