A recreational area nestled in nature

The Shichikawa Dam is a large body of water on the Kozagawa River, which meanders through the mountains of the town of Kozagawa, in Wakayama .

How to Get There

Given the dam's mountainous location, access to the area can be difficult without a car.

It is around a 40-minute drive from central Kozagawa on Route 38 and then the 371. For those without access to four wheels, a taxi from outside Koza Station on the Kisei Main Line will take you to the area in around 35 minutes.

The surrounding nature

The nature surrounding the dam draws people here. The surrounding mountains and glistening water are an all-year-round attraction, but come spring, the area bursts into pink as the cherry blossoms bud and bloom.

In fact, the blooming cherry blossom around the lake is so remarkable that the site is included in the Top 100 Cherry Blossom Viewing Spots in all Japan.
