    1. @Bigtombowski I stayed at some hotel at the beginning of town, but I had dinner and breakfast at the C&L Rooftop.  Excellent Pork Sisig there.  🙂

  1. I wonder if that’s for the Japanese surrender. the hand position is how the japanese handed over their surrendered swords. 

    hey no falling down man lol 😮

  2. Asawa say’s that the Japanese Solider`s (Garrison) surrendered to the Philippine Guerrillas  73rd Division Major Galvez on this site. Looks like the statue is missing his Samurai sword, he is supposed to be handing over in surrender.

  3. The Japanese were truly monstrous and vicious towards the people of the Philippines, taking infants from crying mothers, tossing the infants in the air and impaling them atop their bayonets.

    Here is a cut and paste portion.

    A full account of all massacres of Filipinos by Japanese troops would fill several books. In Manila, 800 men women and children were machine-gunned in the grounds of St. Paul’s College. In the town of Calamba, 2,500 were shot or bayoneted. Around 100 were bayoneted and shot inside a church at Ponson and 169 villagers of Matina Pangi were rounded up and shot in cold blood. At the War Crimes Trial in Tokyo, document No 2726 consisted of 14,618 pages of sworn affidavits, each describing separate atrocities committed by the invading Japanese troops. The Tribunal listed 72 large scale massacres and 131,028 murders as a bare minimum.

    1. Pinoys tend to treat people as individuals. As a rule they do not hold ancient grudges based on history. Japanese are welcomed in the Phils because they tend to fit in better than most Europeans or Americans. All foreign rulers of the Phils have carried out mass slaughter of the population.Yes the Japanese carried out war crimes but so too did the Americans ,General Jake Smith who ordered the death of all Filipinos over the age of ten on the island of Samar. Luckily for those of us who love the Phils that Pinoys do not hold grudges based on the actions of our ancestors 

    2. not to mention the fact that they pretty much destroyed Manila which had apparently been called the Pearl of the Orient before WWII, it sure as hell is no pearl now.

  4. I’m curious how much resentment still exists with the Japanese in the Philippines as opposed to the states. I was actually asked if I had any issues on the subject when accepting a sales position in 2005.

    1. I can tell you that when I was on Mindanao in 2001 to be married to my filipina, I detected a great deal of hatred & resentment for Japanese and an abundance of love for Douglas MacArthur. After reading several books on WWII, written by people who were there, and published in the 1960’s I can understand and sympathize with Filipinos who have no desire to interact with Japanese. Heinous acts of barbarianism were committed.

    2. From what I have heard from Filipinas I know, as far as dating goes.. it seems the Japanese come to the Philippines only looking for a distant mistress, never a wife.  They seem to have something of a prejudice due to the darker skin thing is what I keep hearing so, it’s not really tied in with the war so much.  Although I expect that doesn’t help in the eyes of many Filipinos.  Meanwhile, most Western cultures love the tanned look of Filipinas.. is very attractive and exotic to us.  🙂

  5. The Surrender Of The Japanese Forces In Negros Oriental

    The 73rd division (provisional) Filipino guerilla forces  under Maj. Ceferino Galvez were able to defeat the Japanese forces from their garrison in various southern parts of the province including Zamboanguita in May 6, 1944. This event led to the freedom of the whole island from the Japanese with the help of the combined forces of Filipinos and Americans.  The Japanese forces under Col. Satosi Oie surrendered in this very location at 9:00 AM on September 22 1945 to the US 503rd airborne regiment. Col. Oie gave his sword to Col. F. Wilson as a sign of surrender. The Japanese forces were then brought to the old trade school in Dumaguete (NORSU right now).

    my rough translation

  6. Hi henery, I have been watching your videos for several months now and appreciate the bits and pieces of info about the phillipines. I am so excited to say I am making my first trip to phillipines in a week. I will be coming to cebu and then on to alona beach. I am meeting my sons girlfriend filipina family. He has been very lucky in finding his soulmate. He will retire to lilioan in less than a year. Your videos and some others as well have helped me be more prepared for many things, everything that is but the hot and hotter temps. Keep your camera rolling , love any and all vids with food and what is safe to eat. Thanks

  7. The Japanese didn’t give up that easily in Bohol anyways, so that puzzles me , didn’t think they officially surrendered until the Abombs were dropped on Japan.

  8. Translation: Japanese troops were driven away from their garrisons in various towns in the south, including Zamboanguita, May 6 1944 by Filipino guerrillas of the 73rd Division (Provincial), under the leadership of Maj. Ceferino Galvez. Not long after, the whole of Negros was liberated by joint Filipino and American forces, which gave way to the formal surrender in this area, 9:00 am 22 September 1945, of the Japanese forces under Col. Satosi Oie 503rd Airborne Regiment to the American army. Col. Oie handed over his samurai sword to Col. F. Wilson as a sign of surrender. The Japanese soldiers who surrendered were brought to the old trade school in Dumaguete

  9. If I remember correctly there use to be sword in the hands of the Japanese as part of the surrender. I wonder if they removed it.  
    I will have to dig up some old pictures.

    1. @Ja Cl i was thinking they didn’t put one, simply for safety reasons.  there are steps leading to the platform, people would get hurt from even a dull sword sticking out horizontally.  just my guess.
