I went down there for a preview!

We went for a preliminary inspection on Wednesday, 8/26, and we're pretty sure it's going to be another good tour! We'll be licking our lips at the various Kaneyama intakes as well as the Maruyama Dam! Once again, knee-bursting laughter is inevitable!

Kaneyama Intake Parking Lot

Kaneyama Intake Parking Lot

This is the parking lot where we will meet. It is a large lot, so it should be fine, but if you cannot park there, we would appreciate it if you could park by lining up your car vertically with another enthusiast's car.

It is amazing that they built this 50 years ago, even though it has undergone several renovations since its completion. Also, the tunnel portal is really cool.

You can see that thing from the Kaneyama intake! This will be a treat on the day of the event! (They probably know.)
Oh, and please visit the Aichi Water Kannon on the premises.

After the Kaneyama intake, head for the Maruyama Dam. The road is narrow on the way, so please move carefully. The parking lot at the Maruyama Dam is narrow, but we ask that you park in a row at the far end of the lot.

This is a thing that probably would not have been seen this close up at any of the previous Forest and Lake Friendly Season events. It's so close to you! It's like that.

I'm not going to go into all the details, but you will enjoy it anyway. We hope to see you there!

    Mr. Shin Kamima
    Nice to meet you.
    I would like to be on the waiting list (2 people), but would like to confirm a good date and time to write.
    What time will it be on Friday, 10/9?

    • Sorry, sorry for the late reply.
      Also, sorry for the confusing wording.

      Regarding the waiting list, I meant that if there are any cancellations from this time now until at least mid-morning on Friday, 10/9, we will make an announcement when the cancellation is made and the application will be accepted by 5:45 pm on 10/9.

      This means that if there is a cancellation now, we will give notice immediately.

      Please note that this is due to the need to confirm and inform the Maruyama Dam Management Office of the number of participants. Please note that if there are any cancellations after the afternoon of 10/9, we will not accept any applications.

  32. We have one cancellation and will only accept one person, please write here by 10/9 at 5:45 p.m.! We have confirmed that there is a problem with posts not being reflected, so please use the contact form (https://dampedia.com/about/) to let us know if this is the case.

  33. This is a proxy submission as T2-YA will be participating.

    With this, we've filled the canceled slots, so we're closing the call for applications once and for all!

  34. アポロ says:

    Good evening!
    I was planning to attend the 6th meeting with dam enthusiasts on the 17th of this month, but I am suddenly unable to go due to work, so I would appreciate it if I could withdraw from the meeting.
    We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

    • Sorry for the delay in contacting you.
      I am sorry to hear that you have cancelled your reservation.
      If there's a next time, we'd love for you to join us!

  35. *To all participants
    I am sorry for the delay in thanking you, but thank you very much for your participation the other day. We are relieved that there were no problems, and we hope you will join us again next time.

    Now, I would like to make one request to all the participants. Regarding the photos of the operation room of the Maruyama Dam, we were told that it is OK to post a panoramic view of the monitors and operation console on SNS, web pages, blogs, etc., but detailed photos (visible photos such as names of buttons) are not allowed due to security reasons.

    If you have already posted such photos, please delete them accordingly.

    That is all, thank you in advance.
