A giant ice wall in the area of Mount Tateyama, one of the popular attractions in Japan, opened for tourists on April 15, 2023. Called Yuki no Otani or Great Valley of Snow, this 500-meter winding path cuts through a thick layer of snow as high as 20 meters which is at the highest point of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route.
This path will show a very beautiful view of one of the sacred mountains in Japan, namely Mount Tateyama as high as 3,105 meters. With this route, tourists can also access other attractions such as the highest hot springs and the highest waterfalls in Japan.
For more, tourists can also visit Snow Kamakura or Japanese igloo, as well as the snow tunnel at Daikanbo Station.
The biggest attraction from this tourist route is the snow track. The tourists will drive about 20 minutes to go through this snow path. This snow track is planned to be open until June 25.
The formation of this snow corridor is the result of months of hard work by snowplow drivers who traverse the snow-covered Tateyama Expressway. With the opening of the Yuki no Otani line this marks the resumption of traffic throughout the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route at the end of winter,
Unfortunately, the snow walls and other attractions in the region may close due to bad weather. Tourists must always update information on these tourist attractions before traveling. You can check via the Alpine Route website.
For those of you who want to travel but want to avoid crowds, you can visit in June. Although, in that month the snow wall has started to shrink, but generally it still reaches a height of 10 meters.
