Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route

The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine (pronounced “Alpen”) Route is known as the “Roof of Japan”. The route passes through the dynamic scenery of Mt. Tateyama in the Japan Alps. It is traversed using a variety of vehicles with an elevation change of 2400 meters from Toyama Prefecture to Nagano Prefecture.

I bought a local tour via Viator and went there with my 6yo daughter. The tour was travelling East direction, from Tateyama Station to Ogizawa Station. We noticed that there is lesser crowd if u start from Ogizawa to Tateyama when we were there in May 2018. The snow wall was by far the highlight though all the other points were very beautiful. Also the ropeway with 360 degree views of the snow clad mountains on all sides was a beauty. I would highly recommend this to everyone visiting Japan, and especially in April when the snow wall is at its highest point. We wish that we have more time at the Murodo as my daughter loves playing with snow and the walk along the snow wall was very amazing.

Murododaira

Murododaira is located at an altitude of 2,450m, it is the center of the Alpine Route and a tourist base. There are magnificent mountains in front of you and a walking path is also in place. You can see beautiful “Mikurigaike Pond” the deepest alpine lake in the Japanese Alps, and “Hell Valley” where you can see volcanic activity. You should feel wonderful nature with great force. Murododaira is covered with snow until June, so you had better to bring snow boots to walk around.

Murododaira is a highlight of Kurobe Tateyama alpine route and the final destination of many tourists. Panoramic view of mountains covered with snow is beyond description. It is amazingly beautiful. Such a scenery is like that of Switzerland or Canada. Good is that it is easily accessible for everyone. If you walk around just Murododaira, you don’t need special equipment.

Amaharashi Coast

Reviewed By NigelG407 - Singapore, Singapore

Absolutely impressive coast line between Takaoka and Himi. Can be observed from the train or explored on foot by alighting at one of the stations. The journey by train does not last so long adjacent to the sea, but it’s certainly worth a ride. Remember the windows of the train carriage open upwards completely if you want to take photos. Makes for a nice half day excursion. Himi at the end of the train ride is generally uninteresting.

Matsukawa River Cruises

We have offered these cruises on the Matsukawa river since 1988, at the center of Toyama City. This Matsukawa river is one of the Top 100 cherry blossom beauty spots in Japan. It has 460 cherry trees on the riverbanks. Not only in cherry blossom season but also throughout the year (except in winter), you can absolutely appeciate the amazing scenery from the boats.
