▢ Okuseitsu Power Station【OKKY】

A state-of-the-art pumped storage power plant that boasts the largest output in Japan for hydroelectric power generation.

The Okuseitsu Power Station has two control ponds, Cassa and Nii, and an effective head of 470m between them is used to generate up to 1.6 million kW of power.

Electricity generated at both the Oku-Kiitsu and Oku-Kiitsu No.2 Power Stations will be sent to Tokyo by the Niigata Main Line of TEPCO.The Oku-Keizu power plant was operated directly in the power plant control room, but since April 1993, it has been switched to a remote control system from the East Regional Control Plant in Kawagoe, Saitama Prefecture.

▢ Brick railway bridge【Kedosawa Bridge】

The most beautiful railway bridge in Japan【Kedosawa Bridge】It is located near “Tsucharu Station” on the Joetsu Line, and was picked up as the second place in “Beautiful Railway Bridge in Japan” by Best House 123.

But with the name of the Tsuchidaru, the center of the old Tsuchidaru village hit in the vicinity of the current Echigo Nakazato Station, not houses around the station.The nearby TEPCO hydroelectric power plant/Tuchi power plant (7,000 kW) was unmanned in 1974.The Kan-Etsu Expressway runs through the platform for the uphill line, and the Dotaru parking area is located east of the station.

Kawabata Yasunari’s “Yukiguni (Snow country)” will also appear as a “signal station” where trains will stop after leaving the tunnel.

In addition, Kedosawa flowing near this station is known as a spot for mountain stream fishing and river play, and the Kedosawa Bridge on the Joetsu Line was selected as a civil engineering heritage site in 2017.

▢ Summer river play best points【Masudomari】

The attraction here is that you can jump in dynamically from rocks that can jump in, but on the contrary, you can enjoy it with your family in a gentle place in shallow water.There are some barbecues on the shore, and some people flirting on the river. It’s a quiet trout during the off-season, but it’s a great success only during this time.It’s spring 2020 right now, but I’ve heard rumors about a convenience store nearby.It was good because there was a little distance to get to the nearest Lawson.

Toilet has a hypothetical toilet if you walk a little.The parking lot is free of charge and you can use the empty space on the riverbank, but it is muddy because it is a road and after rain.

*This is definitely something to watch out for, but after rain it is best to refrain from increasing water as the water from the mountains flows in at a time lag.Actually there were accidents in the past.

▢ Saijousan “Kankoji”–Minamiuonuma district

The sect is a Rinzai sect (Zen sect) and belongs to the Engakuji school of Kamakura.The principal image is Shakyamuni Buddha.

The inauguration was started in 1710 (1410) by Kakuo Soden Osho.

“Miso at Sekikoji is a valuable miso that protects an important scripture.
Furthermore, if 600 sutras were buried in that miso
The miso at Sokokashi Sekikoji must have the benefits and merit of the scriptures.”
And the one who worshiped at Kankoji Temple told me to separate the miso and that.

Since then, “What people get this miso is
We can be rewarded with the benefit of the Sutras of the Young Manchurian.”
People in the world said

“If you visit Kankoji Temple, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t visit without the miso.”

As a word for the question “Did you come to Kankoji and thank you for the good miso?”

“Miso licked at Kankoji Temple”

Came to be handed down to posterity.

▢ Kiyotsu Gorge, one of the three major valleys in Japan-Tokamachi City

The Kiyotsu Gorge has been closed since the fall of rocks in 1988.

In order to appreciate the majestic nature of Kiyotsukyo safely and with peace of mind,
The “Kiyotsu Gorge Tunnel” was born in October 1996.In addition, at the 7th Earth Art Festival in 2018, it was renewed as an art work “Tunnel of Light” by Ma Yang Sung/MAD Architects.The total length is 750m.

From 3 panoramic places and the panorama station which is the end of the tunnel,
You can enjoy the wonderful beauty of the canyon.In particular, at the end of the panorama station, a fantastic art space in which the view of the canyon is reversed with a water mirror spreads out.

The Kiyotsu Gorge is a gorge formed by the Kiyotsu River, which is a tributary of the Shinano River.It is about 12.5 kilometers long from Koide, Tokamachi City, Niigata Prefecture to Yagizawa, Yuzawa Town.

▢ Mysterious power spot “Hakkaisanson Shrine” —- Urasa area

It is said that Nakagami Kamashikushi received the oracle and set up a shrine in Omuro (currently the sixth station).There is a folk tale that the pitcher Kokaku, followed by Kobo Daishi, was practiced on the summit at Hakkaisan.Since ancient times, the Hakkaisan religion has been developed around the foothills of the Shugenshu temple as a sacred place for both parts. ..The first sight in the history of the Hakkaisan religion is the Sannomiya Hachikai Daimyojin of Echigo the Shinto Collection, which was compiled in the middle of the north and south dynasty. It was extended to nearby prefectures.However, as time went by and the Hakkaisan kept squealing until the middle of the modern times, its spiritual power was moved deep inside the steep ridge.
In 6th year of Kansei, the man who opened Otakiguchi of Mt. Ontake in Kiso came to Japan and was guided by Okami’s dream report. As it opened, it was ranked as the brother mountain of Mt. Ontake and gradually became known throughout the country.
