When it comes to shoe markers as Yamashita treasure sign, we may encounter an actual shoe or shoes left behind by the JIA (Japanese Imperial Army) soldiers as important clues. Or, we may encounter strange rocks bearing the shape of a shoe.

To all amatuer treasure hunters, you need to know that the Japanese soldiers commonly used different objects in markang their hidden treasure loot. Some common examples include samurai, bayonet, bullets, uniform, combat shoes, and etc…

Different objects may have different meanings as a marker but in this post, we are only going to focus our discussion on shoes.

Shoe as a marker can be encountered on both the ground surface or underground. But based on my own personal experiences, this type of particular marker is more commonly used as a buried marker.

Rocks bearing the shape of a shoe are more commonly used as a treasure marker on both the ground surface and under the ground. However, an actual shoe used as a treasure marker is more commonly used as a buried marker. It’s because an actual shoe used as a marker on the surface can be mistaken for trash.

3 Scenarios when a Shoe Marker is Discovered

There are actually three possible scenarios on how we end up encountering a shoe marker. And three possible scenarios have different meanings.

First, we end up uncovering a single shoe marker which only consists of the right pair.

Second, we end up uncovering a single shoe marker which consists of the opposite pair or the left pair.

And third, we end up uncovering both the left and right shoe.

Interpreting the Right Shoe Marker

If we happen to discover a right shoe marker, this has two meanings.

One, it indicates a possible change of direction. This means that we need to change the direction of our digging spot by shifting it towards the right corner. Two, underneath this right show marker is a thick and hard concrete purposely made by the Japanese soldiers as a blockage.

Interpreting the Left Shoe Marker

On the other hand, if what we discovered is a left shoe marker then this also has two meanings.

One, it also indicates a possible change of direction. This particular marker wants us to change the direction of our digging spot by turning towards the left corner. Two, it means that we still need to dig a much deeper depth.

Complete Left and Right Shoe Marker

If we happen to uncover both left and right shoe markers, this has a very nice meaning.

It actually indicates that we need to continue digging on that particular spot because it is the exact correct spot that will lead us to the location of the object.

Overall, a shoe marker is a very interesting treasure sign if encountered on our site. It actually provides us a correct direction towards the location of the hidden treasure deposit.
