Alpine route: snow corridor

Posted on February 19, 2021

Japan is a pretty small island, but it truly has everything. One of the places that look very different and isn’t located in the far north is Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route. To get there from Tokyo take a Hokuriku Shinkansen Kagayaki to Nagano and then a bus to Ogizawa from there.

It is famous for its Snow corridor, which you can see in the photos, these walls are around 20 meters high, and traveling through definitely will give you an unforgettable experience. You will need to take a bus for this little journey, which will make stops on the way, to let people take photos and wander around.
