◆Recommendation No. 1
Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route

One of the highlights of the Alpine Route is the iconic “Snow Walls” of Murodo. As transient as it is spectacular, a steep-walled path is carved through the snow each spring. These walls of snow tower high above the path, which opens in April, and they typically last well into June. Certain sections of the Alpine Route can be traveled by ropeway or cable car, allowing for some breathtaking elevated views of the mountain scenery.
