Superb views changing with the seasons along Japan’s deepest V-shaped gorge
The Kurobe Gorge Railway runs along the full 20.1km of Kurobe Gorge, Japan’s deepest V-shaped gorge. Dash through countless tunnels and bridges aboard a trolley train while admiring the beautiful natural environment that changes with the seasons. The snowcapped mountains and remaining snow with the new greenery in the valleys are a beautiful sight in spring. Kurobe’s everlasting snow also endures through the summer, which is a perfect time to watch this awe-inspiring rushing river made of snowmelt, directly by the riverside.
