Open annually from mid-April through November, the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route draws huge numbers of visitors from around the world, all eager to navigate the majestic and wild beauty of Japan’s Northern Alps.
Often referred to as the “Roof of Japan”, the Alpine Route is renowned for the many highlights interspersed throughout each leg of the journey. Being autumn, enjoy the fall colors, peaking at the top, contrasting with a greener forest near the base.
Despite its rugged terrain the Alpine Route is also quite friendly to all ages and activity levels, due to the various means of transportation which make traversing the Alps easier. The list of vehicles used to make the journey through the mountains includes trains, buses, a ropeway, cable cars, and even a trolley bus (the only one of its kind in Japan!).
But there is more, much more as we have also included two nights in Tokyo at the beginning and returning for two days at the end. It is truly a perfectly blended tour, the very best of country and city.
We have also included visits to the Ishii Miso Factory, Daio Wasabi Farm, Itchiku Kubota Art Museum, Higashi Chayagai District, and Narusawa Ice Cave, a nationally designated Natural Monument.
What’s more you ask? How about an onsen stay, bullet train ride, 3 hands-on experiences, glass paper weight making, soba making and grape picking.
In Tokyo, the must do’s, Tsukiji and Ameyoko for omiyage shopping as well as Ueno Zoo to see the Pandas and a complete free day to finish up your shopping.
