Hikawa Dam management place
The last update date:
Izumimura with person of unexplored region five-so known as Heike legend.
It is Hikawa Dam constructed in 1967 that becomes tourist attraction of village along with waterfall of suspension bridge (cat's cradle bridge, shakunage bridge) and chinaberry roar of Momiki, Mt. Yayama.
In dam management place rebuilt this time, we watch dam, and, in addition to primary objective managing, there is role as observation station of dam lake park which is famous spot for its cherry blossoms.
From huge observation deck suggesting suspension bridge, we can expect the mountains surrounding lake and surface of a lake to project panorama of sky, the scenery on.
The observation station becomes dam museum and attracts attention as new tourist attraction of village.
We padded dam of Hikawa Dam and increased dam pondage, and, with plan to raise function of dam, rebuilding of old dam management place to become submergence was necessary. It was original function to maintain monitoring, management function soundly in facility which performed control of water gate continuously, but, in the dam management place, function as observation station which reinforced charm of sightseeing of Lake dam park (famous spot for its cherry blossoms, light-up of aeration fountain) here was required in addition by dam CPU.
About the first function, we cope with solid box of concrete. The second function prepares for dynamic stairs tower and observation deck by hanging structure more than 40m in length antagonizing scale power of dam. Reference library for learning, visit about dam contacts with balcony and has both functions as so-called dam museum. Overlook of dam lake at various levels of surface of a lake +26m is unexpectedly fantastic in surface of a lake +38m, observation deck on top balcony of stairs tower, and there is thing that mind jumps.
