Garve Lake Kurobe Pleasure Boat黒部湖遊覧船ガルベ

Pleasure Boat / Water Cruise

The Garve, which does a circuit around Lake Kurobe in about 30 minutes, is the only pleasure boat in Japan that operates at such a high elevation (1,448 meters at the highest point). On the Alpen Cruise, you can watch as the Northern Alps (Hida Mountains) appear before you and experience the grandeur of Kurobe’s natural scenery. The mountains are still snowy even amidst the greenery of spring and summer, and the autumn colors and winter scenery are breathtaking as well. It’s about 60 minutes from the Azumino Interchange on the Nagano Expressway or 90 minutes from the Nagano Interchange on the Joshin-Etsu Expressway.

          Toyama Main Areas


          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.
