This discussion is for all new visitors to my blog who are looking for the answer about, “Where is the Yamashita treasure hidden today?”
I won’t be answering this question in a historical way because I am not that too good with history. Since I am a treasure hunter and not a historian, the explanation that you are going to read here might be a bit different as compared from other sources around here on the internet.
The Yamashita treasure has been scattered all around the Southeast Asian countries.
Yes, that’s correct.
Not just only in the Philippines but also its other neighboring Asian countries.
They hid it in various places particularly on sites where curious individuals especially treasure hunters would never suspect that there are hidden treasures on them. If someone managed to witness a certain spot where the JIA (Japanese Imperial Army) buried a deposit, recovering the item is not easy as you think.
Majority of hidden Yamashita treasures are equipped with deadly traps that you really have to think twice if you value your life or not. But if you are willing to take the risks, then you might have the spirit of becoming a successful treasure hunter.
Anyway, to sum it up, most of the Yamashita treasures are still hidden all around Southeast Asia where Philippines is known as the country containing most of the deposits.
Recovered Yamashita Treasures
Aside from those currently hidden Yamashita treasures, there were already numerous deposits that got also recovered since the end of the Second World War. This is a very controversial topic filled with so much secrecy. Majority of the people are not just aware about it because of the agenda making everyone believe that the Yamashita treasure is just one huge hoax.
Speaking about WWII, some sources claimed that the Allied Forces confiscated a lot of the Yamashita treasures that were still in the hands of the JIA forces particularly those that didn’t had a chance to flee.
Due to the Yamashita treasure in the hands of the JIA, many Filipino skeptics theorized that the Allied Forces only aided the Philippines because of these valuable loots.
What is your own opinion about this? Do you think that the Allied Forces will come and help the Philippines even without the Yamashita treasures in the hands of the JIA?
When we recovered a certain item, we viewed it as money that goes into our pockets. We aren’t Archaeologists who would prefer the item that they found to be displayed at the museums. Thus, we sell our findings to anyone who are interested to both local and foreign buyers.
Items that comes in the form of gold are sadly needs to be melted. It is actually harder to sell gold bars with serials numbers and marking such as “Burma” indicating where they originally came from. There are just so many questions involve that you are far better off melting it and then come up with a good excuse.
Thus, most recovered Yamashita gold are now melted and got sold where they are now a part of commodity in the market today.
The Yamashita treasure is not a valuable items that are hidden in one place. Asking about where it is hidden now is actually a typical question often asked by a certain individual who is knew to this subject which I truly do understand. Anyway, we already got the answer covered above.
Now to locate the Yamashita treasures that remains hidden or buried under the ground, there are several things that you importantly needs to learn.
Here are a few of them:
