Kurashiki Dam Tower

Views of the Pacific Ocean and the East China Sea

By Michael Flemming    - 1 min read

The Kurashiki Dam Tower is a 41 meter tall observation building that is hidden away from the attention of most visitors to the surrounding recreation area. The five-story-tall tower is located just beyond the museum along the northern bank of the reservoir created by the Kurashiki Dam. There's a stairwell reserved for emergency descents only so take the elevator to the top to enjoy views of the surrounding area. The East China Sea and Kadena Air Base are to the west, Henza Island and the Pacific Ocean are to the east.

I'm a wandererer in Okinawa turning over every stone I can find. I write, photograph, and blog about my favorite finds here in Japan's southernmost prefecture. Find more of my rants and finding on my travel blog.
