Default Good points of Japanese hidden treasure

I've been asked before why I thought the Japanese Imperial Army would have buried treasure in the Philippines, vice moving it back home to Japan. They did transport looted treasure back to Japan early in the war. But later, the U.S. controlled the sea lanes heading to Japan. They just couldn't move it home by ship or air. If you look at a map of Asia you'll see how centrally located the Philippines is. The Japanese occupied the Philippine early in the war and had plenty of time to construct the hidden treasure vaults.
