    This picturesque basin in Uonuma City, Niigata Prefecture upstream of Tadami River is surrounded by a number of tall mountains over 2,000 meters, including Mt. Arasawadake, Mt. Echigo-Komagatake, and Mt. Hiragatake. The basin is the location of Lake Okutadami, a man-made lake formed by the construction of the Okutadami Dam, the setting of the film Whiteout. In addition to being a place to enjoy fishing for species including Japanese pond smelt, the lake also features a number of facilities on its western shore, including a sightseeing boat dock, a campsite, and a hot springs spa. Nearby Naka Arasawa is popular for its great views of beautiful autumn foliage in the fall and of fresh greenery and Okutadami's natural splendor in the summer.
