  • Chubetsu dam is a composite type of gravity-type concrete dam + rockfill dams combine dam. And 86 m high embankment Crest length 885 m. In Japan the second height that combine dam (Dragon Gate dam in Kumamoto Prefecture is no. 1). Relatively new dam due to prolonged period of compensation negotiations, completed in 3/11/2007 after 29 years. Is the name of a dam lake, another Lake in General determines the most votes. This saying because it came on the way to the celestial Valley is often a dam lake, was curious.
