Tateyama Kurobe is often highly rated as one of the most spectacular sceneries in Japan. Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route, which stretches from the Tateyama Station in Toyama Prefecture to Shinano Omachi Station in Nagano Prefecture lived up to its expectation in several ways. Running along 90 kilometers, it traverses using five different modes of public transports to commute. The snow corridor, which can get up to 20 meters high (usually from mid-April to mid-June), is not the only tourist magnet. The route also offers a fascinating view of Mt. Tateyama in the Japan Alps, which is only opened for the month of April to December yearly. If you are a snow lover longing for a dramatic mountainous landscape, then it is time for you to get familiar with the Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route.
