(4/26/2013)

Bali Post reports that a series of roadside caves and tunnel built along the roadside in Klungkung, East Bali have been neglected, becoming little more than drainage ditches.

This sad state of disrepair has occurred despite the tunnels' status as official tourist objects under a regency decree issued 1993.

Although located only a few meters from a major roadway, the Japanese Caves (Goa Jepang) are seldom visited by the thousands of visitors that travel up and down the nearby Banjarangkan highway everyday.

The caves are physically located in the village of Koripan at Banjarakan Village in the regency of Klungkung, Approximately 6 kilometers from the town of Semarapura; the “Goa Jepang” were dug by Japanese slave labor in a hillside on the Denpasar to Semarapura road, overlooking the Bubuh River.

The caves are located 43 kilometers from Denpasar.

In all, there are some 16 caves, approximately 14 meters deep. None of the tunnels are interconnected and were supposedly built as shelter against possible attack from the air.

Advertising banner and billboards have desecrated the historical tourist site, while the caves themselves are suffering water damage raising the risk of a future cave in.
