Yamashita’s gold between history and legend

The Yamashita Gold mentioned in the film referred to as the Yamashita Treasure is the name given to the alleged war loot stolen in Southeast Asia by Imperial Japanese forces during World War II and allegedly hidden in caves, tunnels or underground complexes in different city. Despite beliefs that the wealth is still hidden in the Philippines and has attracted treasure hunters from all over the world for over fifty years, its actual existence has been debunked by many experts. Yamashita gold was the subject of a complex legal proceeding initiated in a Hawaiian court in 1988 involving a Filipino treasure hunter, Rogelio Roxas, and former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos. During his twenty-year long presidency, Marcos was accused of stealing large sums of money from Philippine treasuries. However, according to the testimony of Marcos’ wife, Imelda Marcos, the enormous wealth of the family would have derived from the Yamashita treasure.

University of the Philippines professor Ricardo Jose criticized the theory that the treasure found in Southeast Asia was transported to Philippine territory: “Since 1943 the Japanese no longer had control of the seas… it would make no sense to bring something of so valuable here when you know it will be lost in American hands. The most rational thing would have been to transport the treasure to Taiwan or China.” Historian and president of the National Historical Institute Ambeth Ocampo commented: «Two of the myths about capitalism that I usually encounter are the Yamashita treasure and the rumors that Eduardo Cojuangco Jr.’s riches originated from a bag of money», « For the last 50 years many people, both Filipinos and foreigners, have spent their time, money and energy in search of Yamashita’s elusive treasure», «What makes me wonder is why in the last 50 years, despite all the treasure hunters , their maps, oral testimonies and sophisticated metal detectors, nobody has found anything».

  • A film about the alleged treasure, Yamashita: The Tiger’s Treasuredirected by Chito S. Roño was released in the Philippines in 2001. The film tells the story of a former Filipino prisoner of war and that of his nephew, to whom he revealed the exact location of Yamashita’s treasure, being the only survivor of be aware of it.
  • An episode of the US television series Unsolved Mysteriesfirst broadcast in the United States in 1993, analyzed the fate of General Yamashita’s hoarded treasure.
  • The last part of the video game Medal of Honor: Rising Sun is centered on Yamashita’s treasure.
  • Yamashita’s gold is part of the plot of Dragon by Clive Cussler, a novel published by Longanesi. It is the 10th episode, in narrative order, of the adventures of Dirk Pitt and is set in 1993 two years after the adventures narrated in “Treasure”.
  • Yamashita’s gold serves as a relevant element in the plot of dead minesa horror thriller film released in 2013 and filmed on a remote Indonesian island.
  • The plot of the novel The Garden of Night Mists (2012) by Tan Twan Eng is inspired by the Japanese Army’s Golden Lily plan, the operation that amassed Yamashita’s gold.
  • The story of Rogelio Roxas and Ferdinand Marcos was treated in an episode of the British documentary television series Myth hunters.
