Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route

Visit the famous and long demanded Alpine Route in Japanese Alps. Requiring varying modes of transportation, this route takes you through mountains and valleys for some of the most scenic views in all of Japan. From high mountain peaks reflected in the surface of calm, crystal lakes to the lower elevations at the Kurobe Dam and the famous site of the snow corridor, this route is sure to be unforgettably beautiful. The star of this route is the Snow Corridor with walls of snow that can reach 20 meters in height. This route allows for bus and pedestrian travel allowing for a great walking experience and a great size comparison to the nearby busses. The walls of snow are at their peak in May but remain even in August. Our busses will provide transportation where possible but there are many other systems that will be required for you to complete the whole route. You can also experience the Tateyama ropeway or Tateyama cable car which can provide a lift higher up into the mountains. While on these cars, you are sure you have a great view of the scenery below and around you. There is also a tunnel trolley bus which takes you through the inside of Mt. Tateyama and Mt. Akasawadake. The wide variety of scenery featured on this tour is sure to keep your camera and your memory busy! Even in this remote area of Japan, there are onsen hot springs to warm up at and delicious food to be eaten. From traditional Udon to "Alpine Curry", you're sure to find delicious options along the way. There are also many spiritual opportunities along the way as many Buddhist relics have been left behind by the many that have come before.
