as we visited this japanese tunnel its looks like 500 to 600 meters only. the history is so interesting. can you imagine how many filipino die in their small jail inside?? its totally alot. the tourist guide also explain how the japanese survive inside the tunnel. some of the exit tunnel are close due to residency.

The place is surprisingly well-preserved. Definitely a must for educational tours. I was awed by the small, caged-like area where the tour guide said used to house filipino prisoners.

I'm a history buff but the place looked like one big movie prop. Been to different tunnels as well and this one was just sad.

A must see for first time visitors to put the Japanese community in Davao in perspective. Located just a few minutes from the city center, it is easily reached by private and public transport. There is a hotel and restaurant that owns the tunnel

It is not a long tunnel as I expected and there is nothing much to see except small prison and Japanese statue. I appreciate how the tour guide explain the history of the tunnel though.

It was interesting as far as history goes.. but VERY boring .. you walk into and out of a tunnel.. no cool air inside.. be prepared to sweat .. needs work to make it worth visiting

Very short tour. Walk up and back in the tunnel. Interesting piece of history. If you're tall you'll have to walk crouching over! :)

We got lost going there, well for out of town travellers like us better ready your map or gps to save you the trouble. It was a quick stop, we had a tour guide that time and learned few things about how it was built and how long the tunnel is... Better have your flashlight with you when planning to.visit.... More
