In other words, The Japan Alps.
It involves nine transfers - namely highland bus, cable cars, tunnel trolley buses, ropeway, and another local bus; and it took us around seven hours of travel time from Toyama to Shinano-Omachi thus completing the alpine route journey. We purchased the tickets for the whole route at Tateyama Station, it is pricey yet worth every penny.
At the end of our Japan trip, the ladies and I agreed that Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is undeniable the highlight of our trip! The route might be expensive and take long hours but in the end the spectacular view reminds us that this is a journey worth taking.
I would love to go back over and over again, I would love to experience this journey again in different seasons. Amen.
