Akita and Kaohsiung has established a strong bond in recent years. One of the many examples is through the hosting of International World Games. Akita has hosted it in 2001, and Kaohsiung has hosted earlier this year, 2009. After the disaster which brought a significant suffering in Kaohsiung in this important time, we started fundraising in Tazawako, Akita. Many people have pitched in to support the Taiwanese, and we are planning to deliver the collected money to the victims in this coming winter.
So, finally, the photo exhibition is opening in the beginning of December!
The show exhibits a series of photographs by our local photographer, Kazuo Nanba, along with some campaign posters of Semboku City. It is going to be held at Chengcing Lake on the site of 7th branch of Taiwanese Water Coorporation, Kaohsiung City. This is an event to celebrate the amicable relations of both countries. So please check out if you are nearby.
The photos are usually on view at Tazawako Information Center (JR Tazawako Sta). Also in return, we are planning to open a photo exhibition of the lake Chengcing in Akita. The dates are not decided yet.
