The Japanese Tunnels are a series of underground bunkers and passageways built by the Japanese during World War II in order to store and move soldiers and weapons across the island out of reach of Allied bombings.

There aren’t many artifacts remaining in the tunnels; just a few dishes, unidentifiable metal objects and random pieces of trash are scattered throughout. Our small team of explorers decided to experiment with light painting to compensate for the lack of interesting objects to photograph. Photo by Chris Luckhardt.
