a secret organization named Kin no yuri ("Golden Lily") formed for the Yamashita's treasure. Hirohito had many who knew the location of the loot killed during the war. General Yamashita was also convicted of war crimes and executed by the US Army in 1946. The Seagraves also claimed that the American military operatives, such as Edward Lansdale, located much of the loot later during the war. They then collided with Hirohito and other senior Japanese figures to conceal its existence and used it to finance American covert intelligence operations around the world during the Cold War. A treasure hunter named Rogelio Roxas, claimed to have discovered the stores of numerous stacked crates of gold and silver covering an approximate volume of 1260 square feet, as well as a three-foot-long golden Budha weighing approximately 1000 kg. Rugrats made this Discovery with the help of two Japanese men who mapped for him the location of the Yamashita's treasure. He had obtained a treasure hunt permit from Judge Pio Marcos, a relative of president Ferdinand.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
