Built in 1909 and flooded with Tsuruma Dam in 1965. Summer water requirements allow for out-flow, and since 1973 the old power station building is available to be seen for six months over summer. It takes two to three days for the outflow to make the structure visible each year.

it produced 6700 kiloWatts when commissioned; the largest hydro power station in Japan.

50,000 - 60,000 people visit a year. Recent photographs show renovation and stablisation works in progress.

I hope to add photographs of my own one day.
