Sagami river

The Sagami River originates at Lake Yamanaka, the largest and easternmost of the Fuji Five Lakes in Yamanashi Prefecture.

It loops northwest, then northeast through Yamanashi Prefecture and then follows a roughly southerly course to Sagami Bay of the Pacific Ocean between the cities of Hiratsuka and Chigasaki.

It is dammed at several locations along the way, forming a number of reservoir lakes, the largest of which are Lake Sagami and Lake Tsukui.

  1. Hi there,
    I read your tumblr and just wanted to say I think your pictures are brilliant. I also really enjoy the way you give information about what it's really like in Japan - as opposed to all the tourism brochures etc. You are very inspiring to me and I thank you for that.
