Yigo, Guam (Chamorro: Yigu; pronounced /ˈdʒiːɡoʊ/) is the northernmost village of the United States territory of Guam, and is the location of Andersen Air Force Base. The municipality of Yigo is larger than any other village on the island in terms of area. It contains a number of populated places, including Asatdas and Agafo Gumas.

Yigo is historically one of Guam's richest farming areas.[citation needed] During World War II, the village was the site of a concentration camp during Japanese occupation of the island. It was also the site of the island's final battle during the war. The South Pacific Memorial Peace Park was built by the Japanese Government and is dedicated to the many Japanese and American soldiers who died in the battle of Guam.
