Tateyama Alpine Route Private Tour
Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route
Tateyama Kurobe Alpine route is a unique and spectacular route through the Northern Japan which is traversed by various types of transportation including cable cars, trolley buses and a ropeway.
The main attraction of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is the magnificent scenery of the Tateyama Mountain Range, part of the Chubu Sangaku National Park. Visitors can enjoy various activities 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 mid June.

After arriving from the Kanden trolley bus, you will rest in the cool, calm, and fresh air. You may want to try food in some restaurants and shopping in alpine souvenir stores.
