Look of Nibutani Dam
The Nibutani Dam is well-known for having a fishway, and salmon, pink salmon and shishamo smelt swim upstream through the fishway. Except close season from May to June, masu trout can be enjoyed. In the Lake Nibutani, engineless something can enter into the lake, so water activities such as a canoe can be enjoyed.
