Sankyozawa Power Station and Related Objects

The Sankyozawa Power Station is the hydroelectric power station which Miyagi Boseki Co., Ltd. started lights on electric lights through hydroelectric generation in 1888 for the first time in Japan, and the brick structure has survived along with traces of the original water channel. The existing power station has continued operating since 1910 and the building is designated as a registered tangible cultural property. The power generator was made by Siemens AG in 1924 and it is still in service, as it partly retains the original shape. In the adjacent ‘Sankyozawa 100year Electric Historical Center’, a 5kW DC power generator designed by the Imperial College of Engineering, of the same type as the original generator, is preserved and exhibited.
