INTO A WORLD WAR II REMEMBRANCE IN DAVAO
World War II left the Philippines with so many remembrance and one of them is to be found here in Davao City, The Japanese Tunnel. A man-made cave made by the Japanese Imperial armies during the Japanese Occupation. This tunnel not only served as strategical camp for the Japanese, but also for communication and safe transport. Originally, the tunnel stretch up to several kilometer long with several outlets but due to natural phenomena like earthquake, some part of the tunnel collapsed. What remained now is the hundred and fifty meters tunnel.
This part of the tunnel was the Japanese place of worship. The controversial Golden Buddha was placed here together with the gold bars and other Japanese treasures. Today, a replica of the largest golden of Buddha was placed here for the information of tourist.
This part of the tunnel served as the meeting room. This is the place where the officers meet and do the planning. A small escape route was strategically made in this if in case they will be surprised by the enemies.
The next room inside the tunnel is the Armory. This is where the guns and ammunition was stored.
Stalactites are started to be formed in the tunnel.
