Ifugao Museum and war memorial Jul 16, 2008
In the outskirts of Kiangan you will find a small museum about the ifugao culture and a memorial for the surrender of the Japanese troops during World War II.

The museum itself is not really all that interesting – but for a normal country side museum in the Philippines it is reasonably interesting, and you can spend a bit of time looking at the exhibit with traditional tools used in the area.

Outside the museum in a nice little park is a big war memorial in memory of the informal surrender of General Yamashita nicknamed the Tiger of Malaya in the end of the war. He had taken his troops up north on Luzon to make a last stand against the allied troops which were approaching fast.

He was later sentenced to death for his part in the battle of Manila. A battle that kill maybe a hundred thousand Pilipino. Ironically this may be one crime Yamashita did not actually have anything to do with. His actions against the captured British troops in Singapore could probably have been a better reason to sentence him to death – he was not really a nice guy.
