Japanese tunnel on Kowloon Peak [????- ]

I saw this on Wednesday, while heading to the top of Kowloon Peak for the first time. We took the trail that runs straight up the hillside from Fei Ngo Shan Road, starting from the graveyard. (Switch to the OSM map to see the trail.) There's a sign at the start saying the  trail is dangerous, but though it is steep it is clear, and has steps.

The position of the marker is approximate, but the tunnel was on the right side of the trail, about three quarters of the way up.

Japanese tunnel at Lion Rock [????- ]

I've never been up to the top of Lion Rock before, so yesterday we put that right. The air has been very clear these last few days so there were great views. Then as we walked down from the eastern peak (the lion's tail) I noticed this to the left of the path.

The marker position is approximate, but it's only a short distance down from the peak. I stuck my phone in to take a photo but didn't go inside.

Japanese tunnel (Mt. Nicholson, above Wong Nai Chung valley) [????- ]

Where is it?  I was decending from the Radio station at the top of Mt. Nicholson, following a square pipe, all the way down hill, until I want to make a left turn near the location shown on the map. I was trying to break through the woods so that I could quickly get down to Wong Nai Chung road. Then I came across this tunnel opening.

Japanese Tunnels in the Tates Cairn -One Rise more- Fei Ngo Shan Area

Rob recently supplied me with maps of this area which showed approximate locations of 30 Japanese tunnel portals in the area mentioned above. I spent a full field day out in the area while I was back in winter and I wanted to share some of my exploits.
