Construction was begun as for three dams of Nagawado, Midono, and Inekoki that had been planned in 1955 in 1961.
Three dams it was accident construction that 99 people died in 1969 though completed.
The most seems to be the dead related to the Nagawado dam.
Still, the memorial cenotaph remains in the vicinity of the dam.

In the dam of the arch principle, both Nagawado dams are large especially arch-type dams in third in Japan.
The amount of storing water of Azusa-ko lake that the dam saves seems to be almost a volume of water twice the Suwa lake.
Water is used also for the irrigation rainwater in the downstream at the hometown etc.
Moreover, it is only here also in Japan that three arch-type dams are in the same river.
The Hwy-158 starts in the Nagawado dam.
It is necessary to pass here to go to Takayama and Kamikochi.

Moreover, the spectacle in the arch-type dam will be able to be looked at at the same time as discovering it.

キャッシュポイントは、梓川3ダムの一つ、最上流の奈川渡ダムにあります。
1955年に計画された奈川渡(ながわど)、水殿(みどの)、稲核(いねこき)の3つのダムは、1961年から建設が開始されました。
1969年に3ダムとも完成しましたが、99人の方が亡くなるという難工事でした。
そのほとんどが奈川渡ダム関係の死者だそうです。
今でも、慰霊碑がダム近くに残っています。

いずれもアーチ式のダムで、特に奈川渡ダムは、日本で3番目に大きいアーチ式ダムです。
ダムが蓄える梓湖の貯水量は、ほぼ諏訪湖の倍の水量だそうです。
水は下流の里の灌漑用水などにも利用されています。
また、同じ河川に3つのアーチ式ダムがあるのは日本でもここだけです。

奈川渡ダムには国道158号線が走っています。
高山や上高地に行くにはここを通る必要があります。

交通量が多い場所なので、キャッシュは難易度を低くしています。
すぐ発見することができるでしょう。
また、発見と同時にアーチ式ダムの景観を眺めることができるでしょう。

Let's enjoy caching!
