Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route Tours


The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is one of the most scenic mountain routes in Japan that cuts through the 3,000m high Northern Japanese Alps mountains. A highlight of the route is the 20m high Snow Wall which you can walk through. In the past, only a small number of skilled mountaineers could reach the area but the opening of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route in 1971 made it possible for all of us to go deep into the heart of it. Spanning Toyama City in Toyama Prefecture and Omachi Town in Nagano Prefecture, the route can be traversed from either end using various modes of transport such as cable car, ropeway and trolleybus. Enjoy the stunning natural landscapes as you traverse along the route. In 2019, the entire Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is open from April 15 to November 30. The Snow Wall corridor is open to pedestrians from April 15 to June 22.
