Breathtaking views on both sides of the Dam

You have to walk pass this dam when you go on the alpine route. The views on both sides are awesome. If you fly drones, this is the place to fly free, winds can be a bit strong.

Visited Kurobe Dam on Apr 18, the weather was beautiful with the sun beaming down. This causes the surrounding scenes great for photos.

A stop along the tateyama alpine route to the Ice wall. Good for taking scenic shots, and nothing much else, since it's a dam
