Tateyama Tunnel Trolley Bus立山トンネルトロリーバス

Scenic Railway (Trolley, etc.)

This underground trolley bus, the only one of its kind in Japan, operates in the 3.7 kilometer-long Tateyama Tunnel that runs right under Mt. Oyama, the main peak of Mt. Tate. It is notable for how it runs on electricity provided by overhead lines, just like a train. This prevents exhaust gasses from accumulating inside the tunnel and also helps protect the natural environment. The trolley bus departs every 30 minutes and reaches the next station in about 10 minutes. Riding inside the long tunnel that connects Daikanbo Station with Murodo Station almost feels like exploring a cave. Sightseeing information is broadcast on the intercom during the ride, which increases passengers' excitement for the upcoming parts of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpen Route.

          Toyama 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.
