From Nagano: Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route

3. From Nagano: Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route

Meet your guide at JR Nagano Station and board the tour bus to begin your journey to the fabled Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route. Arriving at Ogisawa Station around 10:15, prepare for your ascent before boarding the Kanden Tunnel trolley bus at 11:00, the first of a variety of mountain transports you will utilize to reach the summit. Your first stop is the Kurobe Dam. Constructed between 1956 and 1963, this immense structure required the labor of up to 10 million people and is Japan's highest dam. A source of national pride and emblematic of man's attempts to conquer nature, enjoy some time to admire the beautiful views of the surrounding mountains before starting the next leg of your journey toward the summit. Next, head to the Tateyama Ropeway. Spanning 1700 meters, you will be transported upward to the final stop of Daikanbo, before taking the final trolley bus to Murodo. At 2450 meters, this is Japan's highest station – an isolated outpost in an inhospitable, dramatic landscape. Stroll through the iconic snow corridor which rises up 20 meters above you. Enjoy 1.5 to 2 hours of free time to stroll around the area, with enough time to visit the museums before beginning the journey back to Nagano.

What people are saying about Nagano

The excursion was worth the day trip from Tokyo!

The drive up to the snow monkeys was interesting as I had never been to Nagano before, the walk to the snow monkeys was a beautiful walk, just make sure you have proper shoes for the half hour trek. Lots of monkeys out on the day. Lunch was exceptional, typical Japanese bento box style, something for everyone. The snow time play was the best! The guide we had was so great, he worked hard the whole time to make sure we were having fun, even gave my son some instruction on the equipment which made it more enjoyable for him. It was a great introduction to skiing in Japan and we will be back next year!

Excellent value tour!

We felt well taken care of. Lunch was superb. There was clothing equipment rental for the unprepared. The timing of activities was excellent. We all had a fantastic time in our group!
