The Japan Alps is a fairly big area inland of mid-Japan. This area is packed with high mountain and awesome peaks and wilderness. It surely is a hiker`s delight! We decided to dig into some of this area, and travel/ hike along the spectacular Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route. This is a popular 90 km route, which is open from April to November, and connects Shinano-Omachi with Tateyama. It was an incredible journey through sacred mountains, wilderness, forests, impressive tunnels, high peaks, hot springs and Japan`s highest dam. Plus a ton of fresh mountain air!
