    On September 2, 1945, in Tokyo Bay, the Japanese signed their unconditional surrender to the Allied Forces, thus finally ending World War II. The surrender ceremony was conducted by Gen. Douglas MacArthur on board the USS Missouri. The battleship continued in service for another 40 years, after which it sailed into its retirement home in Pearl Harbor. The starting point for the tours of the USS Missouri is next to the USS Arizona Memorial. Shuttle service is provided to Ford Island to begin the tour. I recommend that you choose the guided tour, since it is conducted by retired military personnel who are able point out the exact location of the surrender ceremony and provide other interesting insights.
