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.

We engaged Hideo to travel with us for 9 days to Hiroshima, Matsue, Nagano, Matsumoto, Takayama, Kanazawa and Toyama and nearby, satellite areas. Hideo's preplanning and travel scheduling was highly professional. He was attentive and accommodating to all our requests, making the experiences special. His knowledge of all things Japan was excellent, answering all our questions thoughtfully. We left the whole itinerary planning to Hideo and we were most happy with the total outcome. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to the mountains along the snow covered Alpine Way at the end of our visit. Many thanks Hideo and best wishes Peter & Ann Jarman
We had Hideo as our guide on 11 April 2017 for our trip to Yoshino. He was punctual to pick us up from our hotel, organized - presented us with the itinerary and informative. Yoshino - nice place for cherry blossom viewing and walking. You get to see nice views as well as street food and souvenirs. Hideo is very helpful, he brought us to buy our Shinkansen ticket from Kyoto to Tokyo. Without his help, we might take a long to time to figure out where to buy the tickets. He also brought us to eat Okonomiyaki, showed us around Dotonbori and brought us to the shops we wanted to shop. Thank you, Hideo! We enjoyed ourselves very much.
Very energetic; knows history of interesting places very well
Hideo is very professional guide. Before the start of the tour, he gives us our itinerary and the prices we have to pay. He's very knowledgeable in the places we went and very patient in answering our questions. Hideo and my Dad hit it off right away. Glad to have booked with you. We will surely book with you again whwn we come back. Thank You!
He was not only knowledgeable but so friendly and courteous. English was good, had no trouble communicating. Not only did we see main sights in Kyoto and Hiroshima but he pointed out subtleties that many would have missed. On top of it all he is also a really nice man. I recommend him highly!
