Site of National Defense Tunnel built during Japanese Colonial Period
Taiwan

Located in Fengshan Hill crossing over Linyuan, Daliao, Fengshan Districts, the tunnel is a defense base built manually by residents of Linyuan, Daliao, and Siaogang recruited by Japanese military, as an effort to prevent landing of U.S. forces. It’s known as the underground Great Wall and was the greatest defense engineering in scale during the Japanese Colonial Period in Taiwan, dating back 60 years. The main tunnel begins at Fengshan Reservoir, passing Cingshueiyan Scenic Area to reach Siaogang Fengpitou, stretching more than 10 kilometers. The winding narrow tunnel allows only one person to pass at a time, while its branch is complex in structure. Inside the cave sees rich seabed resources which of great value in terms of culture and history. Remains of a conference room, a kitchen, beds and others evidence Kaohsiung’s southing position during the Japanese Colonial Period. Currently, tunnels of Longpan Cave are safer for visiting. Visitors are strongly recommended to be fully equipped before setting out.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
