Japan Hole Bukittinggi is one of the historical attractions in the city of Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, Indonesia. Japan is a tunnel hole (bunker) the protection of the Japanese occupation forces built around the year 1942 for defense. Japan began to run into the hole attraction in history in 1984, by the local government. Some of Japan's entrance into this hole are located in the canyon area Sianok, Panorama Park, next to the Bung Hatta Palace and Zoo in New York City.
First, the hole having a length of about 1,400 feet of winding, and more than 2 meters wide was built to function as a storage supplies and equipment of war the Japanese army. Inside the cave there are 21 tunnels before a small alley into the halls for various purposes such as offices, hospitals, food room, jail, space weapons, ambush, and a torture chamber. An estimated tens to hundreds of thousands of forced labor or romusha deployed to dig this tunnel.
When first discovered, the diameter of the entrance hall, measuring 20 cm. Only at the circumference of the body of Japanese soldiers is rather slim. And after that, the entrance hole is now restored to the hall about 3-4 meters in diameter and is equipped with neon lights at various angles and sides. However, the walls have not changed, the stone walls of the first sectional aims to muffle the sound (echo) that does not sound out. Blow forcefully strokes with a sharp object rather still recorded in a number of walls. In addition to its strategic location in the city, the land that became the wall of this tunnel is a type of soil which, if mixed with water will be more sturdy. Even the earthquake that shook West Sumatra in 2009 and not much damage the structure of this tunnel.
When entering this place, you should be down around more than 100 steps. And you will go down as far as 40 feet into the bowels of the earth. But you need not worry, the Japanese have a bit of a mysterious hole, because if we are getting longer or deeper into this hole, the air will feel even colder. It was said that there are six air vents in it so that the deeper the hole we entered it, the colder the air is also how we feel.
