Where is Yamashita's gold?
The Japanese Army during many of their invasions and
the occupations of China, Manchuria, Indochina, Thailand, Burma, Malaya, Borneo,
Singapore and the Dutch East Indies. looted from churches, monasteries, banks,
temples, citizens, and even fallen governments. From 1936, clear up until 1943
their massed thousands of tons in gold. What happened to this massive amount of
wealth is a mystery that has not been uncovered, only speculation.
From documentation as far as anyone can tell in
1944, there were 52 ships under the command of Vice Admiral Takehita carrying
all this gold from Singapore to Japan. However, General MacArthur of the US
invaded the Philippines. Two of the ships were sunk off the shore of Bacuit Bay.
It is believed that the ships anchored behind Malapacao and Langen islands and
more anchored in the Tapituan passage. The treasure is thought to have been
given to General Masihara Homa who had the treasure buried in Bacuit Bay and
other areas throughout Palawan. The two ships that were sunk by the Americans
were leaving the bay presumably after they had unloaded all the treasure.
Today, there are many resorts along this bay and
many believe that the treasure is still there but since the terrain has changed,
it could be underwater caves.
