Shinyo Maru was a Japanese cargo steamer during the Second World War. She was one of the hell ships, used to transport prisoners of war. Shinyo Maru was sunk 7 September 1944 near Liley, Sindangan, Province, Mindanao Philippines by the USS Paddle, SS 263. There were approximately 750 American prisoners of war aboard. Some Japanese guards shot prisoners as they struggled from the holds or were in the water; 688 died when the ship sank, leaving only 82 survivors.
