As Japanese tunnels go, this is quite short at a mere 15-20 steps but nonetheless made the adrenaline rush in my body. It has several exits and requires a bit of dexterity in the visitor.

The tunnel is man made dating up to the Japanese occulation time. It can fit our group of eight using a flashlight. It can go tp the inner level, which we did not attemp. Purely part of tour of norten batan island.
