May 14th, 2016
Samani Dam (様似ダム) located in the northwestern part of Cape Erimo (えりも岬) is a gravity-type concrete dam with 44 m in height and was built in 1975. The Samani Dam has a sloping fishway with a part of glass, and visitors can see the sloping fishway from the side. In addition, the Samani Dam is a famous place for cherry blossoms in Hidaka district. The cherry blossoms are full in bloom from early May to mid May. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
When I read Tweets, Samani Dam seems to be popular.
There is a camping ground at a site, too, and the visitors can enjoy the camp. Few campers visit here, and this campground seems to be a little‐known good place and has a restroom and a common kitchen. But water of the common kitchen is not drinkable.
