Went with my wife and did not regret the trip at all. Spectacular especially in fall when all the leaves are turning yellow and red. You can only buy ticket at the train station or via internet to a Japanese address. Fortunately my dear friend booked for my tickets, so I did not have to wait. At the terminal station... More

We left Kurobe gorge with the best memory of Koyo viewing ever in our many trips to Japan. For those who are visiting Kurobe gorge, try to time it with koyo season , normally best at the first and second week of November. After the end of the Torokko train ride at Keyakidaira, try to hike toward Babadani for the... More

Unless the full route is open, it might not be worth your while to visit the Kurobe gorge. We were disappointed that the jewel in the crown, the last stop at Keyakidaira was closed. So we could only go as far as the 3rd stop, which was just okay, nothing to really shout about. Nice scenery on the torokko train... More

The area is so luscious and calm. It's rather easy to make your way around using the local transport (but a little dear - to be expected, though). It was so much fun and exciting even for us beginners to walk around ...
