Kanna Lake
Kanna Lake ParkKanna Lake is Shimokubo Dam reservoir. People come to this lake for fishing, boat rowing during three seasons except for winter and enjoy nice scenery there.
Sanbaseki Ravine
Sanbaseki RavineThe downstream side of Shimokubo Dam for 1.3km is called Sanbaseki Ravine as the combination of clear flowing water and huge and odd shaped green and white marbled rocks constitute unique landscaping. Medium sized rocks of tuff and chlorite stone combinatione are ideal for landscaping for traditional Japanese gardens.
