Miboro Dam, Shirakawa-mura

Miboro Dam (御母衣ダム, Miboro damu) is a dam on the Shō River in Shirakawa, in Gifu Prefecture Japan. It supports a 256 MW hydroelectric power station. Of the nine dams on the Shō River, it is the furthest upstream.
The dam flooded several villages and shrines, submerging them completely, two cherry trees were taken from one of the submerged shrines and placed in Shirakawa-go where it is said that each petal represents a memory from someone who lived in the villages before they were flooded.

  • Because there is a lot of water storage, the scale is large anyway. The Shokawa cherry blossoms are also worth seeing. And the scenery changes suddenly every season. It is a place that does not get tired no matter how many times it comes.

  • The scenery is good and there are few people, so it's good to be dazed. The autumn leaves are also very beautiful.
