JAPANESE BUNKER IN GENSAN
Have you heard stories about the Japanese colonization in the Philippines? Or heard different stories about World War II? Well, I’m sure all of you did, especially all Pinoys.
But as history tells, the Philippines has been colonized by Japanese for a short time but it was the bloodiest and the most difficult one. During the World War 2, General Santos City or GenSan become one of the last borderland of the American and the Japanese soldiers. Before the World War 2 began, the Japanese forces constructed round cemented tunnels and hideouts in different areas in the city and other neighboring places. And we’ve seen and visited one.
Ali have been telling me about a tunnel or hideout located at an empty lot at the back of the village, so I was so excited and giddy to check it out. We actually don’t know if it’s a tunnel or a hideout cause we never attempted to go inside; there might be snakes, bats, or bugs inside it. Anyway, Ali have heard stories about this igloo shaped hideout/tunnel. They say it’s a tunnel its outlet is in Malesido, some say it is just a hideout, some also said that it contained lots of gold, and some say people in authorities had been inside it and got all the golds/treasure that they can get. But we really don’t know which one is true…
