Map showing the way to view Kurobe Dam.
Climbing the stairs to see Kurobe Dam.
Beautiful view of Japanese Alps.
Kurobe Dam. At 1,500 metres above sea level, this dam is the highest arch dam in Japan. The dam is 186 metres tall with 10 cubic metres of water pass thru the dam every second. During summer, the water is discharged from the lake creating a nice view from the dam observation deck.
Not favorable weather when I visited Alpine Route. The stairs are narrow, so be careful. However, the scenery around the dam is beautiful.
