  • 親の実家から歩いてすぐの場所。小さい頃に何度も遊びにいった場所が今やこんな名所に(笑)。たしかに普通のダムとは違い、とにかく「美しい」の一言。ダムの両端からそれぞれ見る事が出来ますが、そこに辿り着くまでのルートがかなり変わり、迷われる方が多いようなので、事前に要確認です。ゴミはちゃんと持ち帰り、キレイなダムにしましょうね。
  • ダム好きな私にとっては、『なんて美しいダムなんやろう( *¯ㅿ¯*)』のひと言に尽きるダムでした! 大小様々なダムを見て来た中で、一般的なダムとは違い(もちろん それはそれで別の感慨があり 大好きなんですが)、苔蒸した石段や水流の曲線美、名称通りの水流の白さ、水流の迫力、どれをとっても 本当に美しいダムでした。 ただ1つ、ナビの指示を無視し、見掛けた看板の通りに進んでしまったのは失敗でした(笑) 山道や農道をひたすら進み、挙句 道に迷い 地元の親切な農家さんがわかり易い道まで誘導してくれました(๑•∀•๑) 帰りはナビ通りに戻って来ました。 ナビは距離的にはかなり大回りさせられるけど、結果的には ナビ通りの方が早く着いたと思います(笑) ダム好きさんには 一見の価値あり と思います。 京都の南禅寺 水路閣の感じが好きな方にもオススメかもしれません(・∀・)b
