This is a great spot for picnics.

Eat lunch in the open air surrounded by mountains!
If you climb to the top of the dam, you will be able to look over onto Lake Sapporo.
This is a little-known great spot for seeing the autumn leaves.
There is also an entrance for the Mt. Kotengu hiking trail here.
