Japanese Tunnel, Davao City

(140+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
The Empire of Japan's army used Japanese Tunnel--part of a network of tunnels--as a hideout and to transport equipment and mobilize forces during World War II. Discovered during construction of the onsite hotel, this section of the mostly ruined tunnel network remains an important piece of history. Inside the rather eerie 300 m (984 ft) deep tunnel, you'll encounter rooms once used as offices, dungeons for prisoners of war, and chapels, containing artifactes such as machine guns, bombs, explosives ,and ammunition. Look out for the life-sized statues of Japanese soldiers and replicas of a golden Buddha and gold bars. To visit Japanese Tunnel on your trip to Davao City, use our Davao City travel itinerary maker.

  • It's pretty impressive to see this tunnel, built by the Japanese. But most of the tunnel is not accessible to visitors.
