Kurobe Dame, surrounded by the majestic Northern Japanese Alps, boasts a height of 186m to be Japan's tallest arch dam. From early summer to autumn, the dam releases 10 cubic meters of water every second, forming a dynamic scenery among the peaks upwards of 3000m. The site is one of the major points on the Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route, and you are more than likely to see a stunning rainbow on a clear day.

Take a deep breath to refresh yourself, while watching abundant nature that changes seasonally. There are a number of hiking trails leading to the higher areas of the Tateyama mountain range. It is highly recommended to take the cruise ship “Garve” to go around Lake Kurobe, or sample the local specialty, Kurobe Dam curried rice.

The highest dam in Japan 186m was a historically difficult construction project.
I was lucky that the floodgates were released to discharge gallons of water.l since it only happens between June and October. The plce is inspiring. However, to get here is a little expensive by public transportation.

Dam had a very interesting structure. It somehow slopes inwards rather than outwards. Makes the viewer feel very small.
