Best view ever! Worth the trip! Can be hot despite high altitude cos it's very sunny. Take a stroll down to the highest corner of the corridor. But I have to walk back to take transport

Top 3 Place to visit in Japan - Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route, Snow Wall. It's gorgeous and fascinating. I started my journey as early as 6am and complete by 4pm arriving Toyama.

We got lucky and visited on beautiful clear day and it had snowed the day before. Unfortunately it was also extremely crowded. Since we had time to kill we walked the corridor, otherwise I’d have been satisfied with the view from the bus. Be prepared to walk in slippery and slushy conditions.

Very interesting. Glad to see one side of the wall preserved and kept away from tourists who rip into the snow. Fascinating to see how the snow layers layer upon layer. Beautiful.

A breathing place with great snow wall! Truly amazing! But too many people that you can't escape them to take photos. Still a place must to see once!
