I did a search on your photo and came up with this ID information:

It was one of two such photos which showed up on a database titled guam japanese prisoners, which is apparently a working link that will take you to a google web search listing.The link should work if you do a cut and paste and put it in the web browser of your choice.
Yours is the better of two photos apparently taken by the same photographer moments apart. Other photos of the same stockade shows a considerable difference in body weight and cleanliness of the PWs, with yours looking fairly clean and well fed and dressed. The others are much thinner and simply don't look as if they have been in the camp for quite as long.
Hope this helps.
Dear Mr. Kelly,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
At least one of the two photographs that Mr. Bussey located for you in the World War II database is from the record series General Photographic File of the Department of Navy, 1943 - 1958 in the General Records of the Department of the Navy (Record Group 80). The photograph titled Japanese Prisoners of War at Guam, with bowed heads after hearing Emperor Hirohito make announcement of Japan's unconditional surrender (0-G-490320) has been digitized and may be viewed online using the Catalog.
