    Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route

    After breakfast, journey your way to the famous Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route that pierces through the northern Alps to link Toyama and Nagano prefectures.

Tateyama is basically famous for the ”Yuki-no-otani” snow wall which can be as high as a 10 story building, special passage “Snow corridor” is created and you can get to walk between the thick wall of snow from April to end June. After July the walls of snow become shorter but some snow remains even in August. Snow is expected by end of September. Depending on the season, you can see the color contrast created by the nature, with green leaves at the foot of the mountain, the red autumn leaves in the middle, and the white snow at its peak.

    Note: The visit and access to the snow corridor is strictly subject to the local weather conditions.

    Kenrokuen Garden

    After breakfast, take a stroll in Kenrokuen Garden one of Japan’s three most beautiful landscape gardens. The name Kenrokuen literally means "Garden of the Six Sublimities", which according to Chinese landscape theory is the six essential attributes that make up a perfect garden. Featuring a stroll garden with a central pond from the Edo Period, it brings about the elegant beautiful sceneries of the four seasons with sakura, red leaves or Yukitsuri (traditional method of protecting trees from heavy snowfall). Next, proceed to visit Higashi Chaya District that is once populated by geisha and samurai during the Edo-era. The largest geisha district in Kanazawa used to be a prestigious geisha district comparable to Gion in Kyoto. Many old teahouses with latticed windows called “kimusuko” are lined up from both sides of the stone paved street. Several teahouses were built during the Edo period and lined with shops selling sweets, souvenirs, local gold leaf products. Complimentary gold leaf ice cream will be given; a large square gold leaf covers almost the whole ice cream! Thereafter, travel to visit Shirakawago that is famous for their "Gassho-zukuri” (houses with steep thatched roofs)" farm houses that resemble the clasped hands in prayer. The unique architectural style was developed over many generations and is designed to withstand the large amounts of heavy snow that falls in the region during winter. The roofs, made without nails, provided a large attic space used for cultivating silkworms and now declared as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Get to the Shiroyama Viewpoint to have a fantastic vantage overview of the village. Travel to Matsumoto, a mountain city in the Japan mainland and the 2nd largest city in Nagano.
