If descending out of the clouds to Kurobedaira on the Tateyama Ropewy wasn't exciting enough, yet another treat was in store in transferring to the funicular at the Kurobedaira interchange. The Kurobe Cable Car is the only completely underground cable car in Japan, which allows it to remain unaffected by snowfall. Although only 0.8km in length, you drop 373m in elevation in that distance, hence the slope is very steep with a maximum incline of about 30 deg.
Ideally , get a position in the front of the car and watch the ascending car approaching, seemingly on a collision course, until the passing loop materialises out of the darkness. Not exactly scenic, but nevertheless quite exciting. When you arrive at the lower Station (Kurobeko), you exit back into the sunshine at top-of-dam-level at the Kurobe Dam.

I admire how organized the ride is up to the Kurobe Dam and the alps via cable car. Staff are efficient and always guiding the tourist. Pur safety is their concern.

We took this trip with a couple of friends and really enjoyed the experience except for the crowds. When the weather is good and the Alpine Route is open it gets really busy. Be careful near the edge of the platform while waiting for the cable car as crowds may knock you over.
