  • This is a white water dam i've wanted to visit for a long time. When I actually went there, I was convinced of why the beauty is called the best in Japan. You can watch the graceful flow of water without getting tired. This time, I want to look at from the left bank route which is closed to traffic because of construction now.

  • I learned later that it is in a very quiet place and the beautifully shaped running water will forget the time and look at it. It was a dam of a rare shape with a different flow path to the left and right. However, it seems to be a tame pond officially. The view while listening to the song of the small bird was pleasant, too!

  • Walking from my parent's home location. Places where to play when I was little I was now and this attraction to (laughs). Beautiful anyway, unlike a normal dam certainly short. Like many people up there can see each route from opposite ends of the dam has changed significantly and that Wilder is changeable before. And take out trash, we're pretty dumb.

  • Dumb like me, "like what a beautiful dam (* ̄ᅀ ¯ *) to do ' the dam comes down to one word was! Curvaceous stone dam dam various sizes seen in General and the differences (although of course it's another emotion is like), MOSS steamed or water flow force of the whiteness of the stream name, stream, which was really really beautiful dam. Proceeded to sign only one, ignoring the instructions of the navigation system, caught a glimpse of progress just roads and mountain passes could fail (hehe), eventually told to herd in the way comprehensible kind farmers lost the local road (a •! • a) Back came back to navigation Street. Navigation distance in quite a large dam good result highlight ways arrived early to be around, but I think (laughs) Usuki is worth a look there I think. To those who like the feel of waterway nanzen-JI in Kyoto may be recommended (-!-) b
