Walk between walls of snow that reach up to 20 meters high!
Attention all those who are looking forward to a trip to Japan! Since you came all the way don’t you want to conquer some really spectacular sights? If that’s the case, then you’ll definitely want to check out the amazing views of the “Snow Walls” (Yuki no Otani) located deep in a heavy snowfall area where they can only be seen from late April to late June. Set at an altitude of 2,450 meters in the Tateyama Murodo-Daira Plain, the roads can finally be cleared of snow around mid-April. Until around the end of June in early summer, you can find white walls of snow that reach up to 20 meters high depending on the year. Walking on the road between the giant walls of snow here has become a famous adventure sought by many visitors from all over the world.
Convenient short trip to the “Snow Walls”!
Heading to the “Snow Walls” requires one to pass through the high plains of the Tateyama-Kurobe Alpen Route, so it can cost a lot of time and money if you’re alone, even for Japanese people. It’s stressful just trying to figure out the complicated transportation involved!
Perhaps there are a lot of you who would say, “Isn’t there an easier way of getting there?” The answer is: Book a short trip managed by a trusted tour operator.

Explore Shirakawago on foot!
The 1 night 2 day tour to the Snow Walls also includes a trip to Shirakawago which is recognized as a World Heritage Site!

Here you can see some authentic views of traditional Japan!
Historical Hida Takayama: Location of the famous animated film, Your Name.
