Has anyone heard about the treasure tgat has allegedly been left in the Philippines by the Japanese army ? Ive been trying to work out why there are some holes that have been dug on my plot , it would appear that individuals at some point have been convinced that the aforementioned treasure has been buried in rhem thar hills around mount apo ,its not just my plot either ,others have these strange holes I googled it all and theres an intetesting story and ledgend about a Japanese general call yamashita andva vast wealth of loot stolen from the countries that japan invaded duringWW2 Gf now wants me to buy a metal detector
As I was lounging around, thought I would open some boxes I packed 3 years ago when I came to Cebu and retired from California. One of my hobbies was using a metal detector around beaches and parks. So thought I would tune up my detectors (Whites MXT for rings/coins and GMT used for gold nuggets and such). I checked the internet for detecting in the Philippines and only saw license requirement if you are hunting treasure, else public lands(beaches) are permitted, private land with permission. My brother-in-law has some land in the foothills that has strange Japanese marking in stone and has an unexplored cave nearby. I know about being cautious cuz some areas might be booby-trapped. I found some documents for Japanese markings here from WW2. I will be checking that area soon. Anyone have any experience in this area. Also, I live in Cebu and looking for some nice sandy beaches nearby. On the western side it is pretty much rocks for beach. Not a good medium to detect thru. Any detectorists out there I can converse with? Today after tune up and new batteries, tried out the field in front of my house. Walking along I had about 15 kids helping out to dig the spots. Alot of bottle caps, but for 1 hour I did manage to find P19 in coin. Kids were impressed! Just need to find better location.
