This bridge used to be part of the tracks for the trolley train. Its name means “mountain echo”, after the echoes of the trolley train that could be heard in the hot spring villages.
The sight of Kurobe Gorge reflected in the emerald green waters of this lake is truly stunning. A suspension bridge only for monkeys can be seen upstream from the lake – sometimes you can see a Japanese macaque or serow (a type of goat-antelope) crossing the bridge!
A bridge across the most rugged valley of the gorge. Its name means “shrink back”, as people trekking in the mountains tended to be daunted by the valley’s depth.
Nezumigaeshi Rock Face
A gigantic rock face as high as 220m in some areas. The name means “turning mice back”, as it is said to be so wild that even mice chased by cats could not climb it.
Six mountains tower above you, seeming to jostle for position. The scenery on days with thin, wispy clouds has been compared to an ink wash painting.
The name of this rocky mountain means “eastern hanging bell” for its beautiful bell shape. The 759m-high mountain is made entirely of limestone.
Japanese for “ten-thousand-year snow”, Kurobe Mannen-Yuki is a semi-permanent snow bank on Mt. Hyakkan, where the beautiful piles of snow resemble tiramisu. Enjoy the spectacular sight from the Mannen-Yuki Observation Point.
