I will introduce the spots to you as well as record my trip to Lake Okutama.
What is Lake Okutama?
Lake Okutama’s official name is Ogochi Reservoir.
It is an artificial lake (reservoir) managed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Waterworks that straddles Okutama Town, Nishitama District, Tokyo, and Tambayama Village and Kosuge Village, Kitatsuru District, Yamanashi Prefecture. It was built by damming it up.
At the time it was built, it was the world’s largest water reservoir, and today it is one of the largest water reservoirs in Japan.
