  • Provided an important cultural property of Japan's first masonry dam is still active. Without any water when aired on local television as a seems to be impressive. You can feel the power and presence of structures, until it is nearly so. I wanted to see how the fact that spraying.

  •  Laid down for 0/1926, which was completed in 0/1930 only the stone-built multiple arm dam that is amazed at the dam more castle-like appearance.  It is where the dam discharge time except almost nobody visited does not so quietly. Discharge is overwhelming (I saw on the news because it is a local), but not seen in reality. I really like watching discharge.

  • Dam side road and parking lot, there parked we can overlook the whole dam. Was covered with grass, seems able to once from the side of the road to descend along a steep stone steps, is off limits. You can back a little bent at an acute angle parking lot near the crest, views from below the dam, approaching from below the stone walls. Area is a recreational water park. The season of cherry blossoms, fresh green leaves it feeling good. And water 1 x per year is what I thought. Powerful person's guess.

  • Saw brick-built dam is a modest place but this review useful. I think it's off the beaten path, and possibly others.
