Naruko Dam鳴子ダム

Other Sightseeing Spot

This concrete gravity-arch dam built in 1957 is about seven minutes by taxi from JR Naruko-Onsen Station. It's on the Eai River, part of the Kitakami River's water basin, and is managed by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. Naruko Onsen and its village are downstream, and the close proximity of the station makes it easy to get to. Its reservoir, Arao Lake, is part of Kurikoma Quasi-National Park and in 2016 was recognized as a Japan Society of Civil Engineers Public Works Heritage site. Photographers and dam enthusiasts visit in droves for the three-day period over the Golden Week holiday when accumulated snowmelt water is released in what they call the Sudare Discharge.

          Miyagi Main Areas


          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it's the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture's reputation as one of Japan's most scenic views.
