14 images from our Yamashita treasure hunt

Photos not published in our Japan Issue
May 9, 2012

Our road-trip story for our current Japan Issue (May 2012) shows us driving Toyota's Prius and Prius C to Baguio to "look" for the legendary Yamashita treasure. Once there, we interview people, do some "digging," and visit areas rich with Japanese heritage. The story comes with a promise to show you more photos from the trip--images that we weren't able to publish due to space constraints. So, here they are, unedited and randomly picked. If there's one thing we've learned from this road trip, it's that Baguio has a vibrant Japanese side to it. If you love the Land of the Rising Sun and her culture, Baguio is a nice place to drive to.
