The summit of Suribachi is the site of one of the most iconic photographs ever taken: the image of six U.S. soldiers raising the American flag on Iwo Jima on February 23, 1945.

A low mountain on the extreme south end of a small island, Suribachi is an extinct volcano. The island, and others in the Volcano/Bonin chain, were returned to Japan after World War II and are now part of Tokyo prefecture.
