Japan made bad use of forced slave laborer from colonized countries. So, many laborers made their life sacrifced for building up Japan's militarism during Pacific war. Thus, neighbor countries consider the facilities a legacy of Tokyo’s wartime practice of conscripting Chinese and Korean for forced slave labor.


It should be registered on the World Heritage List
