On the 'roof of Japan'/ A stunning 20-meter-deep snow corridor reopens

A giant snow corridor near Mount Tateyama, one of Japan's three sacred mountains, will reopen to travelers on April 15.

Called Yuki no Otani (or Great Snow Valley), this 500-meter-long trail passes through towering walls of snow that rise up to 20 meters at the highest point of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route.

Spanning Toyama and Nagano prefectures north of Tokyo, the 90-kilometer road, dubbed the "Roof of Japan," offers incredible views of the 3,015-meter Mount Tateyama and the 2,478-meter peaks of Mount Akazaëa-dake. But the biggest attraction is the snow walk, which lasts about 20 minutes and will remain open until June 25.

The tourist attraction is the result of months of hard work by snowplow drivers carving through the snow-covered Tateyama Toll Road.

The opening of the Yuki no Otani boardwalk also marks the resumption of traffic on the entire Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Road in late winter.

Other attractions in the area include a special Panorama Road, which gives travelers more beautiful views of Mount Tsurugi, part of the Tateyama Range. This range is open only until May 7.

Tourists can also visit Snow Kamakura (Japanese igloo) and the snow tunnel at Daikanbo station, which also has panoramic views of the Japanese Alps./ CNA.al
