On board the same battleship, which was anchored in Japan's Tokyo Bay on 2th.

Sept, 1945, Japan formally signed surrender papers. The battleship now houses a museum and is permanently moored at Pearl Harbor. Just behind it is the USS Arizona, which sank in the Japanese attack that pushed the U.S. into the war in 1941. The two ships are the bookends of World War II.
