Japanese Guns provide insight into the history of the island firsthand. Scattered across the periphery, these abandoned guns are hidden away in people’s gardens and public parks as they were left. You can come close to the weaponry used in the 1940s Japanese occupation of the island and witness the decaying legacy of a trying time for the local population. Be sure to avoid touching the objects, as they haven’t been inspected for safety. For a better understanding of the story behind the metal guns, hire a local guide who will provide additional information. Put Japanese Guns and other Yaren attractions into our Yaren day trip app, and watch your holiday take shape.
