Kurobe Gorge

Reviewed By raymondcW2764GR

Enjoyable train tour

A highly recommended activity for sightseeing with some spectacular and beautiful scene. We visited in early Nov and were able to see some red leaves. The train tour took around 75 mins. Personally, I felt it was a little bit too long. I would suggest reserving the tickets online in advance. If the weather is not too windy or cold, regular passenger trains would be definitely the best choice. After taking 75min trip, you will arrive at Keyakidaira then enjoy lunch with Japanese noodle. Then you can continue a tour for sightseeing by walking. It depends how much time you have. My family with little daughter, we only spent two more hours then return.

Take your time to enjoy the place

Best time to visit should be late Oct during peak Koyo . I can imagine how the place look like with mountain full of yellow/red leaves and the greenish water as background.If time permit , at least spend some time to explore the Keyakidaira Station area.

A great walk along the river

Great to soak up the beauty of nature ... a fairly easy walk for beginners, too. We would have like to go down to the water's edge at Sarutobi ... but there's no access. (Safer that way?)

Good location for photo-taking

Yamabiko Lookout is near to Unazuki Station and next to the parking area. It is a walking path and at higher level where visitors can have nice views around and take photos on the train running along Shin Yama Bridge. Highly recommended.

More than half an hour walk from Keyakidaira train station uphill and reach Gotamiya Onsen after passing through the rock tunnel. A natural environment in the gorge with sound of flowing water around. Quite an experience.
