Arriving at the interchange between the Tatayama Cable Car and the Tatayama Highland Bus around 09:00am on a cloudy and overcast day, there was about 30-mins before departure of the Highland Bus. With a tight schedule in aiming to get to the Kurobe Dam and back to Toyama by late afternoon, I elected to join the queue (albeit short) for the bus rather than look around the station further. At that point I noticed the four TV's showing LiveCam coverage from various points along the Alpine Route. Although many of the screens were largely obliterated by the low cloud prevalent at that time of the morning, it was interesting to note the temperature gradient between the highest point; Murodo (2,450m : 12.8C) and the Kurobe Dam (1,454m : 17.1C). From the moment we dropped out of the cloud, descending on the Tatayama Ropeway, a fine day ensued with superb visibility for the entire return journey.

We followed the medium loop to have a cool walk in the forest. We were blessed that it was a bright and sunny so we could stroll through the primeval forest. The forest contains 1000year old cedars and beech trees and 60 species of native birds.. Long ago it was rumored that women who trespassed into the forests of Mt Tateyama would be transformed into trees trapping them on the mountain. Hence the area is named, Bijodara - forest of beautiful women. The giant cedars make the forest a famous spot for forest therapy.

The altitude of this place is 977m. But when you came down from Murododaira, you feel certainly very hot. The change of temperature is drastic. There are also some trails near the cable station, but not many people walk at this point.

But do take appropriate footwear and sat nav. Some people had printed schematic A4 bits of paper with hikes on them with lousy footwear. Not good. The paths aren't made up here unlike at Murodo so for your average day tripper you can't get off the road.

We started our Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route 3 weeks ago. We started from Tokyo to Toyama in the early morning. Once we reached JR Toyama Station, we walked over to Dentetsu-Toyama Station next to it where we handed over our Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route tickets which we bought in Shin-Osaka few days earlier and started our journey. We reached Tateyama Station in 60+ minutes from Dentetsu-Toyama station. We had to wait for approx. 20~25 minutes in Tateyama station before getting into cable car which took us to Bijodaira. While we are waiting the cable car, try get in queue as soon as possible but make sure you check the departure time before started queue. We both didn't do this : We were busy walking around Tateyama Station and took pictures. In the end, we both were in the final 25% of the queue which made it impossible for us to get good spot in the cable car. My advise : Try securing a spot in the right hand side of the cable car since it offers the best possible view once it starts ascending. As far as taking pictures of the cable car, you may do so once you arrive at Bijodaira. Both of me and my wife decided to skip walking around Bijodaira during our visit since we were told by a Japanese that the area surrounding Bijodaira was closed that day due to heavy snowfall the day before. We were waiting in the queue but we took the wrong seat position in the bus. Once we were in the bus that took us to Murodo, we sat in the right hand side of the bus. However, we realized that for a better view during our visit in late May, the best seating position would be in the left hand side of the bus in the direction of its driving as someone would be able to see more unobstructed views during the whole journey to Murodo. The whole journey from Bijodaira to Murodo was really interesting as the bus ride offered nice mountain view covered with lots of snow. Although someone may find the same experience in other countries but once the bus started entering snow wall corridor, it offered a different experience which made our journey different than the other ones we both had visited even during my past experience traveling the world for more than 30 years.
