In the highlands of Bukidnon stands a curious monument called the Stone Marker of Yoshitoi's Grave.  It serves as a simple remembrance to soldiers who have been left behind during World War II.

Mangima Canyon, also known as the Stone Marker of Yoshitoi's Grave, is located in Manolo Fortich. This stone was built in memory of the high-ranking Japanese officials who were killed during World War II. Roughly elliptical and measuring about 3 feet and 1 foot across, the stone bears two nets of inscriptions that translate as: "On this spot died Miyazaki Yoshitoi, Chief of Army and "Emperor Chiao." In memory of Kaji Battalion, May 8, 1942.
