View of flood discharge

The Kasado Regulating Basin is one of the regulating basins for the Mie Irrigation System, and is a sloped core zone type fill dam that stores not only water from the direct basin, but also water conduited from the Komono Regulating Basin. The Kasado Regulating Basin is the terminal regulating reservoir for the Mie Irrigation System, and the water flows through it in a natural flow system.

And as soon as I arrived, I looked at the flood discharge and saw water flowing! This is lucky!

A regulating reservoir filled with plenty of water. The Kasato Regulating Pond was the third dam to be constructed following the Nakasato Dam and the Miyagawa Regulating Pond. Before I go any further, I apologize for the darkness of the photo.

The flood discharge is of a type commonly found in earth dams.

Downstream, there is a long and quiet countryside.

Entry to the top is forbidden, and although there is a sign explaining the site, it is not possible to see it. It is probably used for events such as social tours and field trips.

Perhaps because the Kasato Shrine is located nearby, the intake tower is shaped like a shrine, and the bridge parapet is painted vermilion.

This is the top edge, but it is off-limits, so this is the limit.

The scenery is unlike that of a dam.

It is like a river bank. I would love to lie down and look up at the sky or slide on a piece of cardboard.

The gently sloping embankment has a long conduit in proportion to its size. The construction of this area is a bit cool, and it looks like a space battleship.

Looking straight ahead. Something cool.
Incidentally, the water is being discharged today, so it is hidden from view, but a slit-type water-reducing structure has been installed in that area where the water is pooling.

I looked down and saw a white heron playing.

Downstream, it joins the Suzuka River just ahead and finally pours into Ise Bay.

I tried to capture the entire image of the embankment, but it turned out to be an even more confusing photo.

If you use a telephoto lens to look through the conduit, you can clearly see the water flowing.
