On the approach along the base of the mountain, you may note large sealed tunnel entrances, these tunnels were made and used by the Japanese during WWII. If with a local person, like me, you can have a leisurely climb up the side starting at a point about 1.5km away, at the crest are many pine trees and the local people have areas for stretching and exercise. The site is a wonderful cultural and religious place with active prayer and incense offerings. The art along the stone stairway down is worth seeing, but I am glad we took a different root up. Open and collecting a small maintenance fee from 7:30-4pm. There is a lot to see even if you do not go in the paid entry area.

This is not for your typical tourist trip to Fushun. Anyways, the staff is very attentive to sensitivity and will not discuss any bad stories about the site if there are any. If you watched the Last Emperor movie by Bernardo Bertolucci this is the filmed and historical site where the "last emperor" of China was imprisoned. They explain how good the last emperor was treated and I believe he somehow really was considering he was a prisoner.
Good place to go to reflect about a time of a very tormented Chinese history. I suggest you do some research about its history before you visit although the staff will be well trained and proficient.

Committed by the Imperial Japanese forces, against innocent men, women and children. The reasons were greed for the valuable coal, wood, food resources of northeast China, and I believe a feeling of vast superiority over all other Asians of the Japanese of the time! This is real history, and all need to view and remember history so we avoid the same mistakes, crimes, inhuman acts of the past. I now have a much clearer understanding of why the average Chinese citizen today has less than warm feelings for the Japanese nation. In 1932, Japanese Imperial Forces in Fushun committed this tragedy. More than 3,000 innocent people were murdered, and this is the worst atrocity of its kind in WWII, other than the massacre in [rape of] Nanking. The building structure, displays and historical artifacts are first class. I am happy to note that Japanese representatives have visited and installed a black marble marker, I presume making an apology. I highly recommend this place, but not for children under the age of twelve

I was fortunate to have local friends as tour guides and this was one of our stops. There is actually an Eastern mine and Western mine, and a tall coal building tower in between. The train engines used to remove the coal are electric and the amount of track to the bottom is awesome.
