Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route
The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is a world-class mountain sightseeing route that runs through the 3,000-meter-high Northern Alps, with a total length of 37.2 km and a maximum height difference of 1,975 m. The route is accessible by a variety of transportation methods—including cable cars, trolley buses, ropeways, and buses. The experience of walking along the “walls of snow”, which can climb up to nearly 20 meters in height and created by removing snow accumulated around the Murodo Terminal from mid-April to June when the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is open to traffic, is a truly unique experience.
From summer to fall, visitors can enjoy the great outdoors, including the beautiful virgin beech forest of Bijodaira, the Shomyo Falls, Japan’s tallest waterfall, Midagahara with its alpine flora in full bloom, the mysterious Mikuriga-ike Pond, and Kurobe Dam, the tallest dam in Japan.
There are also lodging facilities such as hotels, mountain huts, and campgrounds.
The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is a unique experience to explore the mountainous area in Central Japan with its beautiful nature and a variety of activities.
