  • Surprisingly said recently, is more than 50 years ago, the dam lake is in Tokyo. High water discharge side views from the top of the gum, is the best. Autumn also has advanced considerably.

  • Until no ukihashi one-way from the mountain village about 2 km walk along the lakeside. No way too steep so good walking.
