What to Expect

Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route has seven stations Between Tateyama in Toyama Prefecture and Ogisawa in Nagano Prefecture. We can move about 37km-roure using three vehicles such as cable cars, trolley buses, and a ropeway. Tateyama is one of the few mountains that glacier remains, so you can enjoy a panoramic view of snow-covered Tateyama mountain range.

Let me show you the tour from Tateyama Station. First we use a cable car to Bijodaira Station. You can see Japanese ceder with a height of 28 meters. Then we move to Murodo Station using a bus. Murodo plateau is about 2,450 meters above sea level, the highest station in this route. It is a lave plateau created by eruption. We can enjoy walking through 400-meter "Yuki-no-Otani", or "Great Valley of Snow" from April to mid-June. And we use a ropeway to go to Kurobedaira Station. From ropeway you can enjoy a magnificent snowy landscape of Tateyama mountain range. Lastly we go to Kurobeko Station. Kurobe Dam is 186 meters high, of course the highest dam in Japan, You can watch water with an amount of 10 to 15 tons discharging every second from July to October.
The operating period of "Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route" is from mid-April to mid-November.

I propose this tour on the asumption that the start point is JR Toyama station and we move to Tateyama and we make a round trip between Tateyama and Kurobeko and return to JR Toyama Station.
For your information, it is OK that you go through the Alpine route from Tateyama to Ogisawa one way, or you go through the route from Ogisawa to Tateyama one way.In these cases please send me questions. Thank you.

Hello, I'm HIDEo YOSHIda. Please call me HIDEYOSHI, the same name as the famous shogun who built the Osaka Castle in 1585.

I was born in Kobe and worked in Osaka for nearly 40 years. I would like to introduce the Kansai region to you ,including Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama.

Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, foreigners built their residences on the hillside of the Kitano-cho area, overlooking the ocean. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums, including the Weathercock House, with it's symbol weathercock on the triangle-shaped roof.
In Meriken Park, the red Port Tower (the city's landmark), creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum. The museum's design was inspired by the waves and sailing ships.

When you have a chance to visit Osaka, please join my tour. I'm sure you'll enjoy the interesting and historical, scenic spots. For example, Shin-Sekai is a downtown area with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) at a reasonable price. Billiken (a famous statue of the spirit of luck) will be waiting for you!!. Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi HIDEYOSHI in 1585. Oh, it's my residence, isn't it !

These days "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" area in USJ, or Universal Studios Japan, is also attracting more and more people.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you !! read more

“ See Miyajima and Hiroshima with Hideo! ”

We met Hideo at the train platform at Hiroshima and he made sure we got back to Kyoto on a packed New Year's Day train. From end to end, a high quality service. My daughter wanted to try the local specialty, Okonomiyaki, and HIdeo made sure of that as well. In between we had a very informative tour complete with this own photos to add even more perspective. If you'd like a professional guide and great service connect with Hideo.

“ Wonderful trip of Kyoto and Nara ”

Hideo-san picked us up at the hotel in Osaka at the designated time. He showed us a planned itinerary of our trip. I made a request beforehand that I was with some seniors so walking needed a lot of breaks. We used the train the whole time. Hideo-san was very patient and accomodating of our requests. I will recommend him to friends who plan to do a trip to Osaka.
