(3.9/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
鳴子ダム(なるこダム)は宮城県大崎市、一級河川・北上川水系江合川に建設されたダムである。国土交通省東北地方整備局が管理する国土交通省直轄ダムで、高さ94.5メートルのアーチ式コンクリートダムである。江合川の治水と水力発電、大崎耕土の利水を目的とした特定多目的ダム。ダムによって形成された人造湖は荒雄湖(あらおこ)と命名された。栗駒国定公園に指定されている。地理鳴子ダムが建設された江合川は、北上川の旧流路である旧北上川に合流する宮城県最大の北上川水系の河川である。荒雄岳北東を水源として荒雄岳を囲むように流れ、ダム地点を通過後南東に流路を替え、途中大崎市古川において鳴瀬川に通じる放水路・新江合川を分流したあと旧北上川に合流する。ダムは鳴子峡のある大谷川が江合川に合流する地点の直上流に建設された。ダム建設時の所在地は玉造郡鳴子町であったが、平成の大合併により大崎市となった。ダム名は旧町名である鳴子町から採られている。すぐ下流には東北有数の温泉郷・鳴子温泉がある。沿革旧北上川に合流する河川として迫川に並ぶ大支川・江合川は宮城県の穀倉地帯を潤すが、古くから数多の氾濫を繰り返してきた。1931年(昭和6年)より江合川改修工事が開始され引堤などが行われるようになったが、更なる河川改修を図るべく宮城県土木部は1941年(昭和16年)より「江合川河水統制事業」の一環として現在の地点において実施計画調査を開始したが戦争の激化により中断となった。戦後1947年(昭和22年)のカスリーン台風、翌1948年(昭和23年)のアイオン台風で北上川水系が未曾有の大洪水を受けたのを機に、建設省(現・国土交通省東北地方整備局)は1949年(昭和24年)に「北上川上流改訂改修計画」を策定し、北上川上流部の「北上川五大ダム」計画を進めた。

  • Along the line before bypassing the old route 107. In Japan by the Japanese-only the first arch dam, completed in 0/1957 as a multi-purpose Dam for flood control, irrigation and power generation. Not on the sort of business that remains alive and well. Warning considered suspicious vehicles parked for a long time and call the police. What part of anti-terrorism measures. On-street parking please note that 呉々 also.

  • Naruko hot springs on the way back I went. Dam, was deep in the mountains, but dam around the mountains and Emerald Green Lake was wonderful. Referred to as rough male Lake is a man-made lake. Go to Nice, I thought. Not too many visitors.

  • Naruko-Onsen station in onikobe Springs municipal Shuttle 5 minutes and arrives at the dam. Spoke to the bus driver's under the dam down and played better. And advice and get off at the naruko dam bus stop in front of the parking lot. That the 300 m walk to the bridge arcs visible from the route of the original bus stop from there. Mt. Bunao Observation House, River, dam, Lake, admire stunning views of the blue sky. No dining room, toilets, etc. I notice when you are on the bridge is seen from above the bridge width is very narrow sense, there really was-and a strange feeling. 11-I went to the first weekend, but the bus driver says already fallen at the right time. Snacks very few buses that are raised in a town bench in eating, climbing the slope looks upward and enjoy fully managed facility until original bus stop. It was just good times arrive the bus station bound for naruko hot spring return. There is good or bad thing depends on the weather definitely of no tourist destination. Ridicously bad most people seems to be visited by car. Naruko Gorge headed in after's large crowds of people. This majestic and beautiful autumn leaves was very good.
