Japanese tunnel in Batanes
We went on a three-day tour of Batanes last weekend. Batanes, the northernmost province of the Philippines, and the smallest in terms of population and land area, is one of the best places to visit specially during summer.
One of the attractions of the province is the Dipnaysupuan Japanese tunnel hidden in the hills of Tukon. It was built during the Japanese occupation of the country for the refuge of Japanese soldiers and lookout post. The entrance is low and one has to duck-walk towards the back until one can stand up. It is cold and damp and chilly inside.
There are five doors to the tunnel and it has several chambers.
