Saipan is a US commonwealth island in the Northern Marianas chain 4100 km SW of Hawaii, 1300 miles south of Japan, and 1300 miles East of the Philippines.
No where has such natural beauty, SaipanSaipan is a diverse mix of island and Asian cultures making it the true gateway to the orient.
The Northern Mariana Islands, officially the US Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), is a commonwealth in political union with the United States, occupying a strategic region of the western Pacific Ocean. The capital of the Northern Marianas Islands, the Island of Saipan, is an enchanting tranquil tropical paradise island of unimaginable beauty; highlighted by turquoise crystal water, fire red sunsets, panoramic views, and unparalleled weather. Saipan, or the Island of Saipan, is the birthplace and home of Dane Hodges, the six year old American traveler and subject of this blog. The Northern Mariana Islands, together with Guam to the south, compose the Mariana Islands. The first European exploration of the area was in 1521 by famed traveller Ferdinand Magellan, who is credited with landing on nearby Guam (historical trivia that Micronesian Traveller Dane Hodges doesn’t find reasonable or believable) and claimed the islands for Spain. The Spanish ships were met offshore by the native Chamorro, who delivered refreshments and then helped themselves to a small boat belonging to Magellan's fleet. Letters by two surviving crew members of that memorable journey indicate that Magellan's fleet came through a channel ("high island to the north and low island south") circling south to the west side of the low island (which must be Tinian) and later proceeded south to what may have been Rota or Guam and encountered the inhabitants. You can only see the shores of Guam from the east harbor of Sosanhaya Bay on a clear day; it is not visible from the western shores of Rota at all.
The logical assumption is that Magellan and his starving crew sailed through the Tinian, or Saipan Channel and turned south to the western shore of Tinian, later moving south to Rota or Guam. Whether Guam or Rota, three days after he had been welcomed on his arrival, Magellan fled the archipelago under attack.
Guam was an important stop-over for the Manila Galleons, a convoy of ships carrying passengers and cargo such as silver, plants and animals from Acapulco (Mexico) to Manila. In 1668 Padre Diego Luis de San Vitores renamed the islands Las Marianas after Queen Mariana of Austria, widow of Spain's Philip IV. Most of the islands' native population (90%-95%) died from Spanish diseases or married non-Chamorro settlers, including Mexican, under Spanish rule. Spanish colonists forced the Chamorros to be concentrated on Guam to encourage assimilation and conversion to Christianity. German and Japanese possessionFollowing the Spanish–American War of 1898, Spain ceded Guam to the United States and sold the remainder of the Marianas (along with the Caroline and Marshall Islands) to Imperial Germany. Early in World War I, Japan took the opportunity to declare war on Germany and invaded the Northern Marianas, hoping to annex them. Hours after the Attack on Pearl Harbor, Japanese forces from the Marianas launched an invasion of Guam on December 8, 1941. Near the end of World War II, the United States military invaded the Mariana Islands on June 15, 1944, beginning with the Battle of Saipan, which ended on July 9 with the Japanese commander committing seppuku (a traditional Japanese form of ritual suicide).
Between the end of the invasion and the Japanese surrender, the Saipan and Tinian populations were kept in concentration camps. After Japan's defeat, the islands were administered by the United States as part of the United Nations Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands; thus, defense and foreign affairs are the responsibility of the United States. The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands benefits from substantial subsidies and development assistance from the federal government of the United States.
In 1947, the Northern Mariana Islands became part of the post–World War II United Nations Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (TTPI).
On December 22, 1990, the United Nations Trusteeship Council terminated the TTPI as it applied to the CNMI and five other of the TTPI's original seven districts (the Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia (Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap)), this was acknowledged in under United Nations Security Council Resolution 683 passed on the same day.
The CNMI has a United States district court which exercises jurisdiction over the District of the Northern Mariana Islands (DNMI), which is coterminous with the CNMI. Without getting supplies the battle of Saipan would be a hopeless effort for the Japanese, nonetheless the Japanese were determined to fight to the last man.
Eventually the Japanese simply didn’t have anywhere to go so orders were given to perform a banzai charge.
After the banzai charge the American forces finally secured Saipan and the battle of Saipan was officially over on the 9th of July.
The loss of Saipan was not only a strategic loss for Japan but it also dealt a huge blow to the morale of the Japanese. After the battle of Saipan ended the island itself would play another pivotal role in ending WWII. Saipan is a land of seaside golf courses with five windswept 18 hole tracts that residents can play for 25. The NMI has legendary Micronesian diving, which is quite possibly only behind Palau and Yap for visibility, quality, color, marine variety, caves, wrecks (behind Chuuk in wreck diving), tunnels, coral, grottos, and general adventure diving worldwide.
Night LifeSaipan's evening scene includes fine dining at AJ's and Aqua Resort to numerous pubs such as Godfathers, Wild Bill's, and Gig for drinking, music, and dance. We are known for unequalled tropical weather, averaging a daily high of 81 and overnight low of 74 twelve months a year.


Born in the Commonwealth hospital in November of 2005, he enjoys the benifits of living in tropical paradise. As the island is governed as a single municipality, most publications name Saipan as the Commonwealth's capital. This led to a cultural clash, since in Chamorro tradition there was little private property and taking something one needed, such as a boat for fishing, was not considered stealing. No sailor would call the pass between Rota and Guam a channel, and even if they did, they wouldn’t have called Rota the high island to the North. There is nothing south of Guam so saying they ventured between Rota and Guam and settled on the western shore of the southern island and later sailed further south isn’t reasonable.
And Rota is more probable because a galleon could anchor outside Rota’s western reef (near where the Santa Margarita sank) and go to shore without a dingy as that lagoon is shallow and only 50 meters from the beach.
In 1565 Miguel Lopez de Legazpi arrived in Guam and took possession of the islands in the name of the Spanish Crown. On the return trip from the Philippines to Mexico, the galleons did not call at Guam as the eastern winds were farther north, near the coast of Japan. New settlers, primarily from the Philippines and the Caroline Islands, were brought to repopulate the islands. By the time Chamorros were allowed to return to the Northern Marianas, Carolinians (from present-day eastern Yap State and western Chuuk State) had settled in the Marianas. In 1919, the League of Nations, precursor of the United Nations, awarded the islands to Japan by a mandate. Chamorros from the Northern Marianas, then under Japanese rule for more than two decades, were brought to Guam to assist the Japanese administration.
Of the 30,000 Japanese troops that defended Saipan, fewer than 1,000 remained alive at battle's end. Japanese nationals were eventually repatriated, and the indigenous Chamorro and Carolinians returned to the land.
The economy also relies heavily on tourism, especially from Japan, and the rapidly dwindling garment manufacturing sector. The United States became the TTPI's administering authority under the terms of a trusteeship agreement. However, the CNMI is outside the customs territory of the United States and, although the internal revenue code does apply in the form of a local income tax, the income tax system is largely locally determined. 1101(a)) shall apply to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.”2 Further, under CNRA § 702(a), the “immigration laws,” as well as the amendments to the Covenant, “shall . Immigration Law began November 28, 2009 in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI).
The United States District Court for the Northern Mariana Islands was established by act of Congress in 1977 and began operations in January 1978.
The Japanese used many of the caves and the mountainous terrain to their advantage but it wasn’t long before the Americans developed an effective counter attack, they used flamethrowers, artillery and machine guns to clear out the caves.
The Japanese army even convinced the civilian population that it’s better to die than to be captured. The battle of Saipan came at a high price, over 30,000 Japanese died in the battle, for the Americans it was the most costly battle in the Pacific war to that date. Saipan was captured by Japan after the first world war and because of that a large number of Japanese lived on the island, more than 25, 000.
The loss effectively prompted the Emperor of Japan to distance himself from the day to day operations surrounding the war, so that in case the war was lost he could distance himself from the blame. Saipan had a strategic importance because it was relatively close to the home islands of Japan. Saipan can boast the Blue Grotto, Bonzaii cliff, Forbidden Island, Bird Island, Naftan Point, Lau Lau Bay, Obyan, Icecream, and other exceptional dive sites. Cell values reflect the surface area to planimetric area ratio for the area contained within that cell's neighborhood.

The 15 x 4 mile island is home to about 50,000 residents mixed between Chamorro, Carolinian, Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai, Russians, other islanders, and US mainlanders. The United States Census Bureau reports the total land area of all islands as 179.01 square miles.
Welcome to the US Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands, where America starts her day! The dry season runs from December to June, and the rainy season from July to November and can include typhoons. The islands were to be ruled from the Philippines as part of the Spanish East Indies until 1898.


The Chamorro population did gradually recover, and Chamorro, Filipino and Carolinian language and ethnic differences remain basically distinct in the Marianas.
Carolinians and Chamorros now are both considered as indigenous and both languages are official in the commonwealth (though not Guam). During Japan's occupation, sugar cane became the main industry of the islands, and labor was imported from Japan and associated colonies (especially Okinawa and Korea). This, combined with the harsh treatment of Guamanian Chamorros during the 31-month occupation, created a rift that would become the main reason Guamanians rejected the reunification referendum approved by the Northern Marianas in the 1960s. However, the lifting of World Trade Organization restrictions on Chinese imports to the U.S. In 1976, Congress approved the mutually negotiated Covenant to Establish a Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) in Political Union with the United States.
According to the Covenant, the federal minimum wage and federal immigration laws "will not apply to the Northern Mariana Islands except in the manner and to the extent made applicable to them by the Congress by law after termination of the Trusteeship Agreement." The local control of minimum wage was superseded by the United States Congress in 2007.
CNMI's immigration laws have been replaced by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and other U.S. Another advantage it would provide to the Americans is that they could launch an attack on Tokyo and the Japanese home islands from there. At dawn of the 7th of July about 3000 men charged on the American forces, from that attack 650 American soldiers were either killed or wounded. The next year it would be the place of operations for the planes that would eventually carry and drop the nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki forcing Japan to an unconditional surrender ending the Second World War.
US citizens receive a 90% refund and rebate from their federal income tax provided you are a resident here for at least half the year.
The islands of Agrihan and Alamagan have fewer than ten residents each, and the remaining islands are unpopulated.
The rainy season seems exagerated to residents as most of it falls as night rains between the hours of 3am and 6am, meaning it is another day in paradise after the morning sun peeks over Mt Tapachau. In the census of December 1939, the total population of the South Pacific Mandate was 129,104, of which 77,257 were Japanese (including ethnic Taiwanese and Koreans). The 2010 census was 53,883 and expected to drop with implementation of the federalization law. Since late 2006, tourist arrivals fell 15.23% (73,000 potential visitors) from the eleven months prior. The CNMI Government adopted its own constitution in 1977, and the constitutional government took office in January 1978. The district court has the same jurisdiction as all other United States district courts, including diversity jurisdiction and bankruptcy jurisdiction. Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Ba'hai and non-denominational services can be found throughout the island of Saipan.
Rota has famous 300 ft visibility and a week spent Diving Rota is a photographers dream come true. With no real estate taxes and no federal income tax, this makes the CNMI the nations most favorable tax structure! The Guinness Book of World Records has cited Saipan as having the most equable temperature in the world.
The Spanish then gave the archipelago the name Islas de los Ladrones ("Islands of the Thieves").
Rota was left untouched (and isolated) until the Japanese surrender in August 1945, due to its military insignificance. The Covenant was fully implemented November 3, 1986, pursuant to Presidential Proclamation no. The Covenant was unilaterally amended by the Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008 (“CNRA”) approved by the U.S.
In the last days of the battle over 1, 000 civilians committed suicide and over 22, 000 Japanese civilians died in total during the battle of Saipan. Rota has too many dive site to mention, but you would certainly not want to miss the Senharnom Cave, Harnom point drift, Pearlman Tunnel, Pona Point (the rollercoaster), Shoun Maru, Coral Gardens, Joannes Reef, and the seldom seen Hobbit House. Marianas Golf Course is on the North side of Saipan (25.) on the hill looking west with afternoon wind that makes any hole a challenge.
House of Representatives by a delegate (beginning January 2009 for the CNMI) who may vote in committee but not on the House floor. On April 6, 2005, approximately 1,800,000 cubic feet (50,970 m3) of ash and rock were ejected, causing a large, black cloud to drift south over Saipan and Tinian.
