Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route reviews
We stayed in Toyama for 5 days and this was one of our many day trips. Its starts with the ride on the train from Toyama (Dentetsu Toyama Station) and note JR Rail Pass does not cover this or any.... more »
It was snowing on the day so we got very limited visibility. Some of the scenic pts are closed due to heavy snow and they cut short of the bus back down the the train station due to safety. more »
Best place in Winter, that's like magic wall between road we're passing.
Very beautifull especially at the dam. Very worth to visit. The view to the ice wall so beautifull. Feels like in you are in jungfrau or matterhorn. Very recomended to visit in may june since it still has snow and snow wall.
