Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route
Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is a path that connects Tateyama station and Ogizawa station. The direct distance is just 25 km (approx. 15.5 miles), but the maximum elevation change of 1,975m (approx. 1.2 miles) makes it an internationally known large-scale mountain sightseeing route. A variety of vehicles are used along the route including cars, ropeways, cable cars, and trolley buses that run in a tunnel. Most of the route is traversing a national park, running through many scenic spots including the Kurobe Dam. There are many lodging facilities along the route, and each one is always full of people, providing the cardinal point for walking, mountaineering, and trekking.
There are many highlights, but the most famous one is the "Snowy Otani." The beautiful "snow wall" of accumulated snow along the route as high as 10m (approx. 33 ft.) is just overwhelming.
