(Tourists will enjoy the grand view of Tokuyama Dam from the observatory)12 October, 2017

Is it catchy to say that it is somewhat fashionable to visit a dam site? Or is it somewhat sensetional to mention that a dam site is an attractive sight-seeing spot? The fact is that commercial tour started including the visit to a dam site. The Chunichi Newspaper circulated in the central part of Honshu, or Nagoya and wide surrounding areas, on its September 28, 2017 issue mentioned that the tour was arranged by a private enterprise for a tour, including the visit to Tokuyama Dam located in Ibi Town of Gifu Prefecture.
The following is the summary of the tour:
