Snow walls of Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route in Hokkaido, Japan 🇯🇵
The towering wall often more than 20 m high forms between April to June. The heavy snowfall is caused from the enormous humidity of the Pacific Ocean turning into snow at the altitude of 3015 m. Best ever best just experience on it

A must visit. The whole Alpine Route journey is just amazing! We took the 1-day-1-way pass - started from Toyama early morning to reach Nagano in the evening via the Alpine Route. For the passes check at the Information counter at Toyama / JR East stations. Remember you need to start early - Try to leave Toyama by 7-7:30 am for Tateyama and onward Alpine Route journey

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.
