nagoya TRAVEL GUIDE

The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine is a famous attraction in Japan for foreign and local tourists. It is also known as the  “Roof of Japan”. The alpine route is traversed using different modes of transportation. The tour provides great views of Mt. Tateyama in the Japan Alps.

I originally planned this trip in April (spring) but have to push it in mid June (spring/summer).  The full route opens on April 15th and closes on November 30th. The dates may change depending on the weather conditions and other factors, check this site for updated information of the route.korobe alpine route
