About the Kiyotsu Gorge Tunnel
After an incident involving falling rocks in 1988, the Kiyotsu Gorge valley was closed to the public. The Kiyotsu Gorge Tunnel was opened in October 1996 to make it possible for visitors to enjoy the magnificent natural beauty of the area in a safer and more secure way. The structure was restored in 2018 for the Echigo Tsumari Art Trienniale as an artwork called “Tunnel of Light” by Ma Yansong / MAD Architects.
The tunnel is 750 meters long in total. From the three viewing locations along the tunnel as well as the Panorama Station at its end, visitors can take in the fantastic beauty of the gorge. You can really take in the scenery here. The most impressive spot here is the panorama station at the end of the tunnel, where the scenery is mirrored back on a reflecting pool in a beautiful art space. There are also delightful exhibits throughout the tunnel for visitors to enjoy which provide information on the gorge’s seasons, plant and animal life, and how it came to be formed.
