Alpine Route & Toyama
Open to the public from mid-April to late-November, the Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route is one of Japan’s most iconic landscapes and memorable experiences. Accessible via the Toyama-side or Nagano-side of the mountain range, a series of transports carries visitors high into the North Japan Alps and onto Murodo Station and within reach of the summit of Mount Tate – one of Japan’s three sacred mountains.
Accessible from spring through to autumn, the Alpine Route is most famous for the immense Snow Walls – at their best from opening until late-May. – while also blessed with outstanding hiking through summer and autumn. Nearby the Tateyama-side of the route, attractions including Shomyo Falls – Japan’s highest waterfall – and the Kurobe Gorge combine to make this quiet corner of Central Japan one of its most beautiful and rewarding destinations.
Nestled between the mountains and the northern coast, Toyama is a quiet enclave that remains somewhat undiscovered by international visitors. A convenient stop on the Hokuriku Shinkansen running from Tokyo to Kanazawa, Toyama is a gateway to the both the mountains and north coast – including the abundant seafood markets of Toyama Bay.
