四万温泉から車で10分も走るとすごい迫力のダムが現れる。その裏には満々と水をたたえるのダム湖がある。晴れていると、その水は透き通って見える。 車だとダムの奥まで行き、展望台からダムを見るのもいい。そのまま、湖畔を回り込んでダムの上を走って元に戻るのがパターンか。 ダムの下の公園から見上げるダムも壮大で迫力があっていい。 Feel the gigantic scale of the hydro electric power dam. It is good idea to travel around the dam reserve. Do not forget visiting the park just beneath the dam site.

I rode a bike and then walked up there, felt really tired but it's worth it. Only few people were there, so tranquil. Truely a hidden gem!
