The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is approximately 100 km long, and passes through the Northern Alps to join Omachi with Toyama. From the Ogisawa entrance on the Omachi side, an electric bus, an underground cable car ropeway, and other transportation options can concert you to the route through the central area towards Murodo.
People have been so moved by the 360-degree panoramic view that they have been struck speechless. Except for the period starting from the opening of the route in April until late May, you can walk under walls of snow close to 20 meters in height for much of the time.
Full route opening period Apr 15th – Nov 30th 2017
