Inspirock Rating:
2.9/5 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.

  • Curious to see see the cruelty of the Japanese to the filipino people and should have more boost tourism

  • Facts offered by the staff/tour guide is quite interesting but given that the tunnel is only a few meters long, you can definitely take a pass on this attraction. 
  • Nice to know that this SHORT tunnel is part of kilometer long labyrinths the Japanese Imperial Army had dug using slavery at the time. Nice to see WWII artifacts, but very limited.
