DIPNAYSUPUAN JAPANESE TUNNEL is an interconnected network of tunnels in Tukon Hills, Basco, Batanes. It served as a shelter for the Japanese forces during World War II. 

Between 1941 to 1945, the soldiers had the Ivatan troops dig the tunnel, building five exit points, bunkers, chambers, and a reservoir. The bunker was their headquarters during the battle with the Americans. You will find nothing inside but stones, small holes, and walls of the broken tube. Many entry points have concrete above to shield the tunnel from the war bombs. 

The tunnel is open to tourists for sightseeing. To ensure safety, visitors should not enter the tunnel without a tour guide and a flashlight or torch. DIPNAYSUPUAN JAPANESE TUNNEL is a part of North Batan tours and is often combined with the other tourist spots in Batanes.
