Interesting place to see. But it was short. We finished the tour for less than 30mins. Entrance fee was 50pesos. There was a tour guide. Not much relics. But the experience of going inside decades old tunnel was a different experience.

While its now a resort and restaurant, Japanese Tunnel is still first and foremost a historical site. It gives visitors a glimpse of the life during the Japanese occupation with the diorama inside the tunnel.

Interesting if you're a history buff like me & my hubby. But not much to see really. The tour will be over in 30mins or less.

This tunnel was accidentally discovered in 1942. This tunnel is really worth visiting and I was surprised to learn that they're open even on sunday.

The Japanese tunnel is located at the diversion road of davao city. The tunnel has been preserved well. It is hand made by the Filipino prisoners during the Japanese time. There is an entrance fee of 50 Php to get inside the tunnel. You will be assisted by a tour guide that will share the history of the Japanese tunnel.

I enjoy learning about WW2 places, battles etc. So I thought I'd give it a go. It is on the way back from Eden park so not out of the way if you have gone there. The tunnel itself is about 75 meters long. At one point, it is definitely at Japanese height. I'm 5'11" and had to bend down... More

An alive piece of history. It was very nice for me to learn from so closed the history of Japanese Philippines war. A very educated about the tunnel history guy had undertaken to explain us everything. It was really nice visit.
