Kurobe Dam

Free Admission

Kurobe Dam is well-known for its high water pressure, as the dam releases over 10 tons of water per second, and it is also Japan’s tallest dam. For the best view of the dam, you can go to the observation deck, the outside staircase, or the new observation square. Make sure to bring a camera. And, to catch the water seconds before it is released, the rainbow terrace area is a great choice. On a sunny day, you might even see a rainbow as the water is released from the dam. Another recommended activity is to cruise on the lake, experiencing the tranquility of Kurobe’s nature.
