Natural Magnificient View of Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Routes, Tokyo, Japan (B)

My leg still tired and body still aching from Kamikochi jungle marathon the day before. I woke with positive mood expecting new adventure to my Alpine Routes plan. 

The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is know as the "Roof of Japan". The route passes through the dynamic scenery of Mt Tateyama in the Japan Alps. It is traversed using variety vehicles with an elevation change of 2,400 meters from Toyama Prefecture of Nagano Prefecture.

Remember, Japan is four seasons country. So view change according to season. I was here on 29th September 2015.

Alpines Routes (A 90km routes that connect Shinano-Omachi with Toyama divided into 9 sections with different type of transport and walking. See picture below. It look so easy ,huh? 

Based on my experience, its not that easy but it is possible with strong determination to complete the route.

* Take local train from Matsumoto to Shinano Omachi which cost JPY650 approx USD7 . Unless you have ordinary JR pass) estimated time 1 hour.

Drop bag at Shinano Omachi train station for delivery service direct to Toyama. Just pay around JPY1,200 for one bag. Trust me just pay and drop your bag here to ensure you enjoy Alpines Routes journey better. If you overnight at Toyama then just give the lady your hotel name. They will deliver direct to your hotel. Very convenient.  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
