Kurobe Dam

Kurobe Dam, built in 1963, is one of the largest arch dams in Japan.

As one of the major projects of the century, the construction process of Kurobe Dam was made into a movie “The Sands of Kurobe” starring Yujiro Ishihara.

The water discharge will be performed from early summer to autumn, and the water flowing down from the highest height in Japan is something you don’t want to miss.

In addition, don’t forget to try the local gourmet “Kurobe Dam Curry” at Rest House!
