Very customer centric train tour through stunning scenery. Easily accessible from the Kurobe shinkansen station by taking the Toyama Chuo railway. Even saw some Japanese monkeys standing by the tracks.

We visited Kurobe Gorge by early Nov. and took the small train ride uphill. Trip was really beautiful as the tree leaves have changed colors. Highly recommended.

Took small local train to see all nature around there. Need at least 3 hours, but if you have more time, hop off at every station, see more nature beauty.

We missed the fall folliage, which must be spectacular here, and hope to return earlier some fall. Really beautiful scenery, staying in Unazuki Onsen was also pleasant, a very quiet onsen area.
