Enjoy the Richness of Water with All Five Senses on a Special Journey

『Tour the dam and water at the source of the Tone River』

There are seven dams in Minakami Town, where most of the town is occupied by the source area of the Tone River, called Okutone.  
It is an important water infrastructure that plays a variety of roles such as flood control, flood control, and hydroelectric power generation, but it is also a must-see tourist spot.
Yagizawa Dam, located at the far end, is an arch-style concrete dam with a height of 131 meters, and the scenery is breathtaking whether you look at it from below or from above, excluding the dam lake.

Lake Okutone, an artificial lake created by the construction of a dam, is surrounded by untouched nature and is home to certain wild animals and plants.
In this program, you will be able to tour the inside of the dam embankment, which is normally not accessible, and experience the mountains and forests at the headwaters of Okutone from the surface of the lake as part of a patrol boat experience.
