If you have an interest in history this is well worth a visit. The entry fee is only P50 which includes a guided tour. The guide I had knew the basic facts and it does not take very long. It is interesting that they did not find this tunnel until they were excavating for the Diversion road and that Japanese... More

Very quick tour and only 150 meters long so not much to see but still interesting and you can get a good feel how the Japanese lived during WW2. P50 entry fee is nominal.

Even if you can do the Japanese Tunnel in 5 minutes, it provides people with a great experience on how the Japanese soldiers used to live during II World War. I thought the price was honest and the place was interesting, from a historic perspective. If you had never been to one, it's worth it. Otherwise, forget it and go... More

Honestly, tourist spots here in the middle of Davao City are not the many so this is a good spot to check out for a short time.

It's situated below a restaurant, which makes it easy for visitors to access (easy to park here too). You have to pay 50.00 to enter, a tour guide will join you and orient you on the history of the tunnel. It is well lit inside, there are dummies placed in some areas of the tunnel for visual representation of the... More

For P50, it's worth making a short side trip to this place. Pretty interesting how the 150 m tunnel supports itself and that it used to run for 7 km.

Loved it ... not built for tall Americans but worth the visit. Dark, damp, dripping with water from the ceilings ... spookie Japanese soldier figures all around you ... You will have a tour guide and she will make it a memorable visit.

I had a guided tour through this Japanese Tunnel. It seemed very authentic. The tour guide was very knowledgable and talked about the different aspects of the tunnel as we walked along. She even was gracious enough to take pictures of us as we walked along the tunnel. Good place to visit if you are interested in history.
