  • Rare masonry dam without water until the bottom of the dam-side can be reached. From just below the dam is a magnificent sight. Tourists are less off the beaten path.

  • You should go with the car so far. Parking lot can't Park so is suspicious. Went to GW is pretty green dam and force, is a very nice place. And put on the other side of the dam you can see the view from the top of the dam.

  • Old old dams made from 2017 / 03 visit Taisho to Showa. Model says "multiple arch dam", in Japan and another one place is not. Moreover, this is so old. And water cannon have been quiet when I went is still working that I was surprised. Days of summer sunshine on the water looks nice I thought. You can get in kanonji-Shi onohara damn card. Has information about the damn card on the sign in front of the dam, so helpful.
