Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route Featured

The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is a unique and spectacular route through the Northern Japan Alps which is traversed by various means of transportation including cablecars, trolley buses and a ropeway. Completed in 1971, the route connects Toyama City with Omachi Town. The section between

Tateyama Station and Ogizawa is closed to private vehicles. It is completely inaccessible from December to mid April. In 2018, the entire route is scheduled to be open from April 15 to November 30. The main attraction of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is the magnificent scenery of the Tateyama Mountain Range. Visitors can enjoy varying vistas during different seasons of the year. In spring, accumulated snow, especially around the upper sections of Midagahara and Murodo, form a majestic snow corridor whose snow walls reach up to 20 meters high. A section of the snow corridor around Murodo is open to pedestrians usually from mid April to late June. In 2018, the snow corridor is open to pedestrians from April 15 to June 22. On the opening day, the snow walls reached a height of up to 17 meters.
