Old Pathways with Hidden Yamashita Treasure Deposits

As a treasure hunter, I already have a lot of experiences dealing with Yamashita treasure deposits that are hidden in various old pathways. So in my own personal opinion, the JIA (Japanese Imperial Army) had probably anticipated that the pathways of their time will still be used up until today. Due to this reason, we always consider old pathways as important clue in locating buried or hidden Yamashita treasures.

Have you already seen a Yamashita treasure map? If “Yes” then there is always one thing in common among them where pathways are often plotted. Through these pathways on the treasure map, it allows treasure hunters to locate the correct site or place on where the treasure deposit is hidden.

Let’s have some illustration on how to interpret the possible location of a hidden Yamashita treasure deposit in different types of old pathways.

Sharp Curves

Throughout my treasure hunting career, I already have several experiences dealing with old pathways with sharp curves. What I noticed is that, the treasure deposit is often found either at the outside or inside portion of the sharp curve.

As shown on this illustration, the two dots represent the possible deposit spots on a sharp curve. But in most cases, it is a lot more common that the treasure deposit spot is at the outside portion of the curve.


It seems that the JIA preferred to intersections for their hidden treasure deposit spot. When it comes to pathways, there are actually three different types which are the following:

  • Y Shape Pathway

As shown on this illustration is a Y shape pathway. On this kind of site, the possible location of the hidden treasure deposit is somewhat close or near the intersection where the three paths intersect. To give you a much clearer idea, the two dots on this illustration which is either on the left or right is the possible treasure deposit spot.

  • T Shape Pathway

On this T shape type of pathway, the three paths meet together again on one spot. But unlike the Y shape type of pathway, the treasure deposit spot is at the top portion as indicated by the dot on this illustration.

  • Cross Shape pathway

A cross shape type of pathway consists of four paths where they meet together in one spot as shown on this illustration. This type of pathway involves a lot more work as compared from the other previous two. It’s because the treasure deposit spots are on those four corners indicated by the dots on this illustration.

Straight Path

How about a simple straight pathway?

If you happen to discovered a straight old pathway then the possible treasure deposit spot can either be at the beginning of the path or at its end. On this illustration, the two dots represent the possible treasure deposit spots.

Moreover, old pathways still needs some confirmation signs or marker before you can consider working on it. You actually need to explore the area for clues to make sure that it has a positive treasure deposit. I highly suggest that when such locations, you have to widen your search area by covering at least 50 feet distance away from the old pathway.

Some Road Contractors are Treasure Hunters

You may not believe this that some road contractors are actually treasure hunters. I already came across a lot of them and they even became a close friend of mine. According to some of them, they are often given projects to construct major roadways with another secret objective which is to recover a hidden Yamashita treasure. This explains why there are some major road ways that are still good and fully functional but then, it suddenly need immediate renovation.

Perhaps the most interesting story about pathways was about the former Philippine president Ferdinand E. Marcos. If you still do not know it yet, one of his best accomplishments during his term as the Philippine president was that he developed a lot of major roadways throughout the country. He was able to build many major road networks linking the three main regions of the country which are Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. By constructing these major pathways, he at the same time recovered a lot of hidden Yamashita treasure deposits.

Today, many road contractors are doing the same method like what Marcos did in the past. Some are even so eager to renovate roadways because they do believe that there are still many missed treasure deposits on those pathways.

The only sad part about road contractors who are treasure hunters is that, when they managed to recover their target they will immediately run away and leave their construction work unfinished.
