Unazuki Onsen, Kurobe Gorge “Yamabiko Promenade”

A moving observation platform!
The Tateyama ropeway
This is a space that quietly tells of the history of Kurobe. It is the tunnel through which the little sightseeing train of Kurobe Gorge once ran.

Nowadays it has become a promenade, making it possible to stroll through this mysterious space. 

This area is a piece of heritage to pass on into the future; a place where visitors can gaze in awe of nature, and appreciate the efforts of the Japanese people who developed this deepest gorge in Japan.

If you ever have the chance to visit Kurobe Gorge, be sure to do the walk and experience it for yourself.

Kurobe Gorge and Unazuki Onsen are not on the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route. They are near to each other but accessed from different locations. The Alpine Route is awesome and I recommend staying a night along the Route (personal favourite is at Murodo) to fully explore the area. 

Another tip is access from Toyama is preferable (instead of Nagano side) as Toyama has more accommodation options that are more affordable.

Straddling Toyama Prefecture and Nagano Prefecture, this mountain sightseeing route traverses the Northern Alps, a stunning sequence of 3,000m peaks. 

You can cross the magnificent mountainous scenery in a relay of various vehicles, such as cable car, ropeway and trolley bus. 

Offering everything from relaxed trekking courses to arduous mountaineering, the route can also be enjoyed by mountain climbers of all levels of experience. 

It also boasts a variety of record-holding attractions, such as Japan tallest dam, Japan’s oldest mountain hut and Japan’s highest train station. 

Savour the dynamism of nature in every season of the year!
