The volume of water discharged from the dam is well over 10t per second and you can enjoy the tremendous view of the water splashing. A rainbow may appear in a sunny day. Kurobe Lake made by this dam is beautifully colored in emerald green. You can also look up Tateyama mountain range from the side. Please enjoy the wonderful panorama scenery.
