Hōnen'ike Dam (豊稔池ダム, Hōnen'ike damu) is a multiple-arch dam in the Sanuki Mountain range at Kan'onji, Kagawa Prefecture, Japan.[1] The reservoir it creates is used for irrigation. Construction began in 1926 and was completed in 1930.[2] The dam is 32 m high and has a crest length of 158 m. It is supported by six arched buttresses.[3] Some renovation work has been needed to control leakage; special care has been taken due to its status as a cultural asset.[3]

The dam has been designated an Important Cultural Property by the Japanese Ministry of Culture.[2]
