Sightseeing Spots: Hachimantai/Tamagawa Area
Ogamiyama and Ogamibashi
Ogamiyama mountain (Ogami is for male-god) is an 860 meter-high, cone-shaped mountain, standing at the halfway point of Route 341 along Tamagawa dam reservoir. Along with Megamiyama (Goddess mountain), the name comes from a legend of the two gods (god and goddess), passed down from the old times in Tamagawa settlement, now submerged under the Tamagawa reservoir. Ogamibashi is a bridge crossing Tamagawa Reservoir from right below the mountain.
