First you need to buy the tateyama kurobe pass so you dont need to queue to buy tickets for the whole trip *excluding the jr pass The trip was amazing with the snow wall and the lake view.

we did explore these areas of activities due to restriction of time and very tight. Also we are not adventurous people. Sorry can't assist you with these questions.

Hello! Our family is planning to do the Alpine Route also in one day with the Option Ticket: Leave Tokyo at 5:30am to allow arrival into Nagano by 7:30am, then catching the Limited Express Bus from Nagano to Ogizawa (apparently there seems to be no Express Bus during the time we want to traverse), therefore we have three stops before getting to Ogizawa by 10am. Judging by your experience (and the direction), and trying to plot the departure times from each spot, we hope to get to Toyama by 4pm. We have to make it to our ryokan in Hida-Furukawa (Takayama) between 3-6pm to try to catch dinner. Anyway, the big question is how long it takes from Murodo (the Snow Walls right?) down to the Tateyama station? The schedule on the website stops at Murodo and then shows departure from Tateyama station to Toyama. You think we will be able to do the whole Nagano - Toyama in 6 hours, with a little time to have some lunch at Murodo? We aren't hikers or campers. Just sightseers and "passing thru". Thank you for your opinion!
