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.
Also referred to as the “Roof of Japan”, the Alpine Route is renowned for the many highlights interspersed throughout each leg of the journey. Of, which we will be visiting is the Tateyama Snow Corridor, an expanse of road flanked by massive walls of snow reaching up to 20 meters in height.
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 three 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, Shichiekn Sake Brewery, Itchiku Kubota Art Museum, 2 flower festivals, the Azalea Festival and the Fuji Shibazakura Festival, and the Ninja Village complete with show.
What more you ask? How about 2 onsen stays, one at the luxurious Kuroyon Royal Hotel Nagano and the other, Hotel Mifujien, its onsen offers stunning views of nearby Mt. Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi. Lastly, an evening at the historic Matsumoto Hotel Kagetsu, established in 1887.
