Anyone been ventured inside to check if the tunnel is really this short?

It is *possible* to enter the lower level of the tunnel here, but it's a bit of a drop (and squeeze).

If you see this brick structure, through the trees, you're getting close. Metal shutters for firing ports are still visible. The best entrance is behind the bricks.

The tunnel *does* open up after you manage to get in - it's the getting in that's the problem.

Japanese Tunnel in Pinewood Battery Area Lung Fu Shan [c.1943- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1943-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

This tunnel is close to the unpaved trail leading up to Pinewood Battery Heritage Trail. The entrance is immediately visible when you walk by. It is a small tunnel with only one entrance, and turns right with a dead end. There is a pair of light holders (are they?) made on both sides of the walls in the right branch.
