I believe this was on top of Shibasaki bunker. There is no caption for this photo.

Looking towards the West. A new one for me. Always hopeful that more pics will be dug up. Thanks for posting!

Hard to say where this is but thanks for the post. we know that two of these guns were on top of the HQ structure but that severed tree looks to be planted in the sand not far from this gun. Optics I know can fool us so I just don't know. I adjusted the pic a little but still no help.

You are correct Al. It is one of the guns up there.
