  10. だむきち says:

    I don't know anything about dams, but I hope to participate!
    I eat curry! Are the core ingredients spices? I'll have a curry!
    This is my first time in Agi.
    Core material collection, burning WW

    • 神馬 シン says:

      No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. "I don't know anything" is not true.
      Dam Lake Curry, where the core ingredients are spices! It might be surprisingly tasty! (Wrong)

      • だむきち says:

        A little bit of soil to hide it....
        No, no, no, I can't compete with my seniors!

        By the way, is there an after-party for the fieldwork? I was wondering what to do about staying overnight...

  11. くらら says:

    Good evening!
    I will participate in the event!
    Of course, I will eat dam curry.
    Best regards!

    • 神馬 シン says:

      Oh! Please come by all means! We are waiting for you from the bottom of our hearts, even though it is a bit far!
      Well, we finally have more than 10 members, but we haven't made any slides! I'm a little worried now.

  12. コージ says:

    Nice to meet you.
    I am a beginner who can hardly call himself an "enthusiast," but I am thinking of visiting your site to study as well.
    We would love to have dam lake curry as well.

    What kind of container should I prepare for the core material? (I have only this level of knowledge...)

    • 神馬 シン says:

      > Mr. Koji.
      It's outrageous that it's a study! As long as it's inspiring and fun, it's OK!
      Sorry about the container of core material. I didn't check that much (sweat).
      However, I think it is OK because it is like a Tupperware of 10cm size.
      I will check it out and will include it on this page as soon as I get confirmation.

  13. よっしー says:

    Good evening, Star.
    I would like to participate!
    I would also like to have a dam curry please!!!!
    I'm also looking forward to seeing the core material from the Agigawa Dam...
    Thank you for your cooperation.

      >Mr. Yoshi
      Thank you for your participation! We look forward to seeing you soon!
      I am also still leaving the penetrating stones of the field river in my car, but the core material is something I am looking forward to as well!

  38. hide says:

    On Saturday, can I just wear sneakers, or do I need a helmet, army gloves, flashlight, boots, etc.?

    • 神馬 シン says:

      You only need a pair of well-worn sneakers. You don't need military gloves, though,
      I think it is a good idea to have one. A flashlight is also unnecessary.
      I don't think you need boots either.

      ...However, snow is forecast for the Ena area on the day of the event.
      How much it will rain depends on the weather, but there is a good chance that it will snow,
      If you are coming by car, please bring studless tires or chains.

      In some cases, please consider coming by public transportation.

  39. 阿木川ダム管理所 says:

    Good morning.
    Agigawa Dam Management Office.
    There was snowfall in Ena last night, but as of this morning, there was no snow on the roads, and the sun is currently showing its face. However, there is snow on the side of the road and on the surface of the mountains, so please drive carefully and be prepared for cold weather when you visit the Agigawa Dam today.

      Following Mr. Miyajima's recent lecture, I learned a lot from this one.
