This is one of the Japanese tunnels on the island.
tall narrow shape.
This is very similar to the tunnels found during the
Viet Nam War.
This tunnel appears to be partially filled in, but it would
be very interesting to explore.
These tunnels exist on many islands
Shima , just north west of Okinawa.
Japan made many cave
hideouts throughout the Pacific during World War 2.
The Entrance to this cave is almost invisible, yet inside
it can be a huge maze of tunnels.
of Japanese Hideouts after WW2
Japanese Soldiers held out in these caves
on Guam and all over the islands
of the Pacific, some even to this day.
One of these Japanese men was Shoichi Yokoi
who lived in these caves
for 28 years until Janurary 24, 1972.
He said that the only thing that
gave him the strength
to survive was the faith in himself and that he was a Japanese Soldier.

Many of Guam’s Japanese caves were hand-dug by
native slave labor, and are plentiful on Guam..
The Japanese simply LOVED
Let’s take a look in my picture files and see if I can find any
more cave photos...
Natural caves were used as well, but they
are not symmetrical, like the hand-dug ones were..
A continuous running
arc along the top of the cave, and relatively smooth side walls would
indicate a hand-dug cave, whereas a natural one would not be so uniform
Notice that this Japanese Tunnel has a heart shape.
