黒部湖 Kurobe-ko Kurobe Lake

Jp En

Kurobe Lake is an artificial lake formed by the completion of Kurobe Dam in 1963. It is located near the town of Tateyama in Toyama Prefecture, at the foot of the Japan North Alps.

Meltwater from the North Alps runs into the lake, which is surrounded by original beech forest. The emerald green water is very beautiful with the Tateyama and Ushiro Tateyama mountain ranges reflected on the lake's quiet surface.

At 1448m, the lake offers the highest point in Japan where you can take a cruise. Comfortable cruises are available from 1 June to 10 November. You will be moved by the beauty of the North Alps and the sight of the majestic trees changing through the four seasons. From late September to early October, the beech trees at the shore turn from green to yellow, adding a vivid touch to the mystery of the scenery.

黒部峡谷 Kurobe-kyokoku Kurobe Gorge

Jp En

Kurobe Gorge is located between the Tateyama mountains and the Ushiro Tateyama mountains (Mt Hakuba, Mt Kashima-Yariga) in the Japan North Alps. The scale, depth and power of the gorge make it the premier valley in Japan both in name and reality. It has been designated as a Special Natural National Monument and a Special Beauty Spot, and is included in the Joshinetsu Plateau National Park.

Along the valley, there are many places to visit such as Kurobe 'eternal snow', Dashiroppo Peak, Couple Rock and Kurobe Lake formed by Kurobe Dam. The Kurobe Gorge Railway, or Torokko Electric Railway, runs for about 20km from Unazuki to Keyakidaira, and is very popular with tourists. The railcars have open windows, so you can directly enjoy the wonderful natural scenery. The views are especially dynamic in spring, with the fresh green foliage, or in fall, with the red leaves.
