The vast majority of Japanese soldiers in World War 2 died, rather than be captured. They considered it a huge shame to NOT DIE IN BATTLE. They either attacked the enemey, or committed suicide. The prisoners referred to in this question may have been held very late in the war. As I recall, it was maybe 1944-45. I do have pictures showing work on the golf course, although I have no way of authenticating the pictures as to time and place, ID's etc. I also remember that it was not a "golf course" in the sense of today's magnificent courses. Rather, I believe that it was a "roughly" constructed course, just in the sand or pasture, or whatever might have been available, just to provide activities, while awaiting the end of the war reassignments, but all those memories are vague recollections at the moment.

The Japanese were only in the Philippines from about January of '42 until about Oct '44. December 1941 the Japanese were attacking the Philippines; October 1944 was the Leyte Gulf naval battle with land invasions into the Philippines. The Japanese were only "settled into occupation" for less than 36 months (without heavy fighting). Thirty six months was only enough time for Japan to sort out the necessary Philippine people for construction work (forced labor), and begin building up defensive fortifications in the Philippines. In addition to this, the Japanese had to gather the appropiate people with skills to commence other "supportive" functions of the occupation forces. Added to this, was an ongoing "guerilla war" that Japanese forces had to contend with; constant patrols to dig out the insurgents, and then execute them. There was NOT enough time to establish much "entertainment" and "sports" to leave a permanent influence.

China exports cheaper goods to Philippines that are affordable to most of the Philippines. The China government has also partnered with the Philippine government and is building roads and bridges in the Philippines.

What? That doesn't make any sense, really. A manga is a Japanese comic. How could it be made into a building? No.

A building security card has all of your information on it. It will have your social security number on it and your name. It reads the information on it so it knows exactly who is in the building at any given time.
