    Toyama Pref. Nakanikawaguntateyamamachi Ashikuraji Beechzaka outside 11 national forest
    This cable car, which traverses a 400-meters vertical distance at a maximum slope of 31 degrees, connects Kurobedaira Station to Kurobeko Station on the Kurobe Alpen Route. Japan's only completely underground cable car, the entire route was built inside of a tunnel in order to preserve the natural environment and protect the cable car from the snow. Make sure to check out the views from the front of the car. You will feel the excitement of a new adventure beginning as soon as the departure bell rings and the tunnel lights turn on. Passengers love the retro appearance of the cable cars, which have not changed in appearance since entering operation in 1969.

    Toyama Pref. Nakanikawaguntateyamamachi Ashikuraji Buna Slope Foreign Forest
    These busses operate between Bijodaira Station and Murodo Station on the Kurobe Alpen Route, a vertical distance of around 1,500 meters. Mt. Tateyama's Murodo-daira, an area that sees some of the world's heaviest snowfall, is famous for Yuki no Otani. These massive snow walls can be seen from April to June. It is a stunning sight to watch the 20 meter-tall walls pass within centimeters of the busses' windows. Many passengers got off at one of the bus stops along on the route to enjoy its many attractions. These include the area's massive Tateyama cedar trees, a viewing platform where visitors can see Shomyo Falls, and more. Informational videos that provide information on these attractions play on monitors inside the bus.

    美女平から室堂へ1500mほど登ります。最初は森林帯の中を進みます。ガスがかかっていましたが、雲を抜けると快晴の立山連峰のパノラマが広がります。車窓は美女平から乗る場合、左側がお勧めです。

    Toyama Pref. Nakanikawaguntateyamamachi Ashikuraji Buna Slope Foreign Forest
    This ropeway covers the 1,700 meter horizontal distance and 488 meter vertical distance between Daikanbo and Kurobedaira on the Kurobe Alpen Route. It is notable for having been built without support pylons in order to maintain the scenery and protecting the environment. It is also Japan's longest unsupported ropeway. Passengers can enjoy great 360-degree panoramic views of the Ushiro Tateyama Peaks to the East, the great slopes of Daikanbo to the west, and Kurobedaira Station and Lake Kurobe below. Depending on the timing, you may be able to see the Garve sightseeing boat that operates on Lake Kurobe. In the autumn sightseeing season, the mountains are carpeted in red autumn foliage, creating a magical scene.

Toyama Main Areas

around-area-map

Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
