View of the levee from the bridge on the downstream side

The Obara Dam is located eastward on Route 156 from the Gokayama IC of the Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway, but it is easy to miss because there is a tunnel near the embankment. This dam is designed to generate electricity, and there is a power generation facility right next to the embankment. There are few spots to take pictures, and as a result, this is the only picture I was able to take.
