0505-Otori Dam

Located downstream from Okutadami Dam, this is a dedicated power generation dam owned by J-Power Development. It is off-limits to the general public.

Although we could not see the entire embankment due to the power plant building, the solid appearance of the embankment is unique to the gravity-type arch. The white object hanging down from the right bank of the embankment is a hydraulic pipe for power generation. / Gravity arch dam / 83m
