This is a reservoir formed by the Sagae Dam in Sunagoseki, Nishikawa Town. The Gassan Lake Mizu no Bunkakan on its shore features shops, sports facilities, and more, demonstrating urban development putting the natural environment to use. The Lake Gassan Daifunsui Fountain with a jet of 112 meters is the highest in Japan. A lot of tourists visit throughout the year to check out the patterns of fountain spray that change with the seasons.

Yamagata Main Areas
Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
