A good trip. 1 day is enough as it's a quiet town. Though we were lucky to see Sakura here in Apr 2019, I think the best time to visit Kurobe Gorge is during fall foliage where you can see various shades of autumn leafs in...More

The gorge is listed as one of the most scenic spots in all of Japan. Most times of the year, I'd be inclined to feel sorry for Japan, if this is the best they've got. There are any number of spots just as scenic in...More

We spent the day riding the trains and visiting each station along the Kurobe Gorge railway. The open cars on a narrow gauge railway is an exciting and fun activity. Stopping along the way gives us some extra time to appreciate the natural scenery along...More

This is a lovely valey with greenery view and freshly breath air. Sweet and friendly local and the free of charge spring water really enhance the trip.

We left Toyama on a cloudy day and took a chance hoping to miss the rain. Glad we did. It was not crowded and I think the photos looked better on a cloudy day. From Toyama station, it is one stop to Kurobe-Unazukionsen with the...More

I was there last month and took the gorge train from Unazaki to Keyakidaira which is the end tracks. I don't think you can drive to Keyakidaira as I did not see any cars or roads here. You have to travel here on the gorge... More
