Click on any of the images to see the enlarged copy and narratives of the photo.

This tower was built by Japanese Buddhists with the cooperation of the Province of Bataan as a symbol of Filipino-Japanese Friendship. The tower holds a buddhist bell with inscriptions in three languages: Nippongo, Tagalog and English. Likewise, the narrative markers are in three languages.

Unlike, the Death March monument which had its metals stolen, a caretaker maintains the Friendship Tower park including the public toilet across the road. However, the toilet is open only when the caretaker is there.
