Awesome sights!

I would love to view it myself one day.

I believe that there were photos of the gorge exhibited at the tourist centre at Tazawako station, right?

Yes!!! There were! Thank you! It is photographed by a local artists, Kazuo Nanba. We will also have his photo exhibition in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The feeling of appreciation of the nature is universal in any language, so I hope it will transcend the cultural differences and many people will find it beautiful :)
