Rare Shape Dam and Lake Branched into Two -Rumoi Dam and Lake Chibaberi-
July 11th, 2014
Lake Chibaberi (チバベリ湖) is a man-made lake in Rumoi city located in the northwestern part of Asahikawa city. A shape of the lake is branched into two, it is the rare shape. Rumoi Dam (留萌ダム) with 41.2 m in height was built in 2009 and the Lake Chibaberi was borned. Appearance of the Rumoi Dam is unusually, too. The Rumoi Dam is a central core model rock-fill dam made of soil and rocks without an artifact of the concrete. Because it is a new dam, it may be to be the form of the dam considered environment and a scenery.
When I read Tweets, Lake Chibaberi and Rumoi Dam seem to be popular.

いままで少ないダム回った中だと、留萌ダムはダム湖にそってずーっと車の走れる道が続いていて、人工物とそれの与えた大きな変化が自然の中に突然やってきた光景が延々と続く感じが異世界感強くてお勧めです。綺麗に舗装されて立派な橋も掛けられてるワインディングが突然行き止まりになる所とか最高— My First denwaki (@9h0n3_5bj) 2015年9月1日
