A concrete Japanese watch tower, 7 meters high with an inside diameter of 3.3 meters, and 20 centimeters thick, stands guard at each strategic place by the north and south end of the Suague Bridge in Janiuay poblacion.

Serving as sentry points during the Second World War, these watchtowers prevented local guerillas from using the bridge, tending to delay the progress of their offense, defense or reinforcement. Nevertheless, the watchtowers signify the last stand of Japanese defense in the area.

Down the years, the indestructible concrete twin structures may from time to time remind Janiuaynons of atrocities committed in those times. However, bad memories notwithstanding, Janiuaynons stand to gain from these tourist-oriented landmarks in terms of income-generation.
