General Yamashita’s Dream Book | Aquila Chrysaetos

Introducing to you guys a book entitled, “General Yamashita’s Dream Book – How to Successfully Find Hidden Treasure in the Philippines” by Aquila Chrysaetos. This is a book that I do recommend for both beginners and well experienced treasure hunters in the Philippines.

If you are thinking that the person behind this book is me then you are completely wrong. Although, the person who is really behind this Yamashita Book is a friend of mine that goes by the name, “Dave”. I actually mentioned him in one of my previous post which is about Dowsing. Please don’t get the wrong impression that I am only promoting his book because he is my friend. That’s not it.

I am promoting his book because it offers a good source of information about the hidden Yamashita treasure. In fact I already bought my own copy and read it several times. I am surprised that Dave covered a lot of topics that are all new to me. So after I finished reading it, I realized that it is the perfect book for every Filipino treasure hunters to read.

Just recently, Dave contacted me claiming that he visited us on this blog and read a lot of your comments. He probably noticed that majority of you guys are asking for interpretation of the signs that you have found. So he suggested that I should recommend his book to help you out. It’s because after reading his book, “you will most likely be able to interpret the signs that you have encountered on your own”.

More About Dave – Real Author of General Yamashita’s Book

My friend Dave spent around 8 years here in the Philippines where he worked on various treasure sites. These sites include Angeles City, Bamban, Clark AFB Areas, Marivelles, Cebu, Glan, Gensan and Davao Mindanao. And the best part about him is that, he already helped a lot of Filipinos discovered Japanese or Yamashita treasures hidden in their properties.

This book was actually written by Dave intended for Filipino treasure hunters. It took him a total of 6 years on his research putting them all into his own writings. Included on his book are his compilation of Japanese treasure signs, Japanese Maps, photos of recovered gold items and photos of the sites that he worked together with his own team.

Moreover, Dave is a friendly person just like me. He is so easy to be approached and does not bite. So if you have purchased his book and there are some topics that you want to clarify to him then you can easily reach him via his email.

In addition to Dave’s book, he is also an expert person when it comes to treasure bonds. My last conversation to him was all about the “Japanese Bond Boxes”, specifically the 3x 1912 Kobe Sauna bond boxes. He actually have a very serious buyer in Swiss. And of course, he is also interested with other treasure bonds as well. Thus, when it comes to treasure bonds, Dave is my mentor.

    • Hello, I hope life is treating you well and thanks for introducing to me/us (your followers) about Dave’s book. I got a lot of information from it which is very informative. It also sounded to me that he is writing another book. Do you know the status of his book if it is already available in Amazon?

      I am actually looking for more general signs used in Compostela Valley area. Many of the signs on this place are yet to be found here on your blog and Dave’s book. So I am curious to know a lot more information.

      I sent an email from you before but I never got a reply where I was asking for your assistance. Anyway, I will be sending another email where I am going to share this unbelievable story.


      You are welcome Don.

      Yes, the last time that I had conversation with Dave, he claimed that he was writing the second edition of his book. I think it is near completion.

      When it comes to the Yamashita treasure signs being discussed on this blog, there are tons of information that I am yet to share. Unfortunately, I am a busy TH myself but whenever I have the time, I am filling this blog with new content of information. I guess this goes the same thing to Dave where after writing his second book, there can be another third edition that will follow through.

      I am so sorry for being unable to respond into your email. There are actually hundreds of messages in my Inbox that I am yet to reply. Anyway, feel free to send your interesting story because I might be able to respond to all those messages in my Inbox this whole week.

    • Sir, I have sent you a few emails asking about questions that are not found on your website/blog and I have not received any response yet.

      I am from Tagum where my place consists of many interesting sites consisting of rocks and trees with markings on them. However, most of these symbols cannot be found in your blog so as the Yamashita Dream Book that you recommend.

      I really cannot believe the sizes of the inscriptions on the rocks because they are big sizes. Most of them are engraved faces or heads of animals particularly snakes and turtles.

      Who was the Japanese General who hid the treasures here in our place? Does anyone knows the history of our place about the JIA? How do they interpret the meaning of their signs? Thank you very much Sir Elmo. I will patiently wait for your response.


      Sorry, Don Armi. I was gone for like two to three months due to some personal issues that I need to fix. You should check my FaceBook Page for such updates.

      I admit that my blog/website still lacks a lot of information. I actually have a lot of interesting things to share about Yamashita treasures but I really do not have much time to write about them.

      Your place is indeed interesting. I have a strong feeling that there are several hidden deposits around that are yet to be recovered. Those engraved faces and heads are good signs that the items are hidden nearby.

      Now to answer your questions, the name of the Japanese General responsible in hiding treasures in your place are usually indicated by a certain sign. For example, General Tomoyuki Yamashita often use three to five stars as his own representation.

      To learn about the history of your place, your best bet is to ask your elders or old people who managed to survive the previous WW2. History Books can be an unreliable source of information.

      When it comes to the signs, the JIA used a combination of their ancient form of script writing which are the Kungi and Kanji. Interpreting them are not really easy which takes a lot of research.

      Anyway, I will try to check my Gmail account to see if you have attached some photos of the signs that you encountered. I might be able to interpret them giving you some ideas of what to do next.

      I have questions for him. Can you give him my email add so I can communicate with him?

      Hello Elmo Sir, I am inquiring about a stone with the T sign carved on stone but the top of the T curves upward and also on the stone is a Y, but too also looks like it can be a T sign.

      On other rock is carved the letter J with a big curl like a hook. Can you tell me the meaning of these please as we are about 40 meters in to tunnel and many many big boulders.

      Also we encounter along the way many many heart stones and foot and Japanese boot, leaves in cement, snakes at least 3 now with poison smells and we found 3 breather holes Sir.
