Japanese Tunnel, Davao City

(2.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The food is horrible and expensive. The staff is unfriendly and unresponsive. Did not get order correct. 
  •  Japanese Tunnel was anxious ago Marie Natuna in meal and then visited with the bride and the bride's sister and her family.  In buying tickets in the hotel of the same name on the right side of the tunnel entrance on the first floor, entrance with a Filipino guide system.  This tunnel was dug as an escape route in the local army's do.  At the entrance was re-check stand of army officers and enlisted men.  Went inside and immediately welcomed Geisha doll, smiled wryly.  Tunnel tunnel is less than 2 meters when mark in manpower dug in all directions.  Was like an icicle hanging stalactites from the ceiling. Along the way, part of the height of 160 cm long and ended up banging our heads against. Helmet is delivered ago in Japan, but there is no Philippines.  Also the Guide to see because there are less parts to be careful as"with no attention. Beside the main corridor and in supporting passage, why standing Buddha customer billing, before that was loaded with gold bullion.  Be aware of the Yamashita treasure, installed.  Feeling as thoughts, images of the Filipino people Japan army location exhibits in the tunnel, was the original tunnel.
