7 Ma Yansong/MAD Architects, Panorama Station

Kiyotsu Gorge is known as one of Japan’s three most beautiful gorges. It was designated as Joshin'etsukogen National Park in September 1949, and it is a place of great academic interest.
Its steep, rocky walls with a river flowing between them cut a V-shape through the mountains, and the gorge was also nationally designated as a place of scenic beauty and a natural monument. The rugged vertical columnar joints of the rock face combined with the rapidly flowing clear blue river offer an unforgettable sight.
