Tateyama Ropeway (立山ロープウェイ)


Ropeway, etc.

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.

This ropeway links between Kurobedaira and Daikanho. The distance is 1.3 km, and it takes 7 minutes. From the ropeway, you can enjoy a panoramic view of mountains party covered with snow.

          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.
