Snow walls in Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route

Tourists are walking between huge snow walls, wich are 14 meters high at high point.

Snow walls is about 200 mters long. Sightseers enjoy walking.

Drawings on the walls will disappear soon together with snow. Maybe acceptable graffiti.

Tateyama Ropeway runs 1,700 meters long having no support pillar between the two stations.

Ropeway wires run in the air and look massive.

Snow stripes from the ropeway look artistic, but it’s the nature that makes them.

Kurobe Lake is calm and serene reflecting the emerald-green, which is surrounded with high mountains. The Kurobe dam was built about 40 years age to supply electricity for rapid industrialization at that time.
