Kurobe Alpine Route and Kurobe Gorge

Hi Daniel San

Good afternoon. This is my plan:

30Oct: from Matsumoto to Omachi onsen. Overnight at Omachi Onsen.

31Oct: Kurobe Alpine Route. Overnight at ?

1Nov: Kurobe Gorge. Overnight at Nagoya.

2Nov: Nagoya->Tokyo

However, I am not sure where should I stay after the Kurobe Alpine Route if I were to go Kurobe Gorge on the next day. And where should I deliver my luggage from Omachi Onsen hotel to which point? Could you advise.

Fyi I would be using JR Pass for my 12 days in Japan. The above is part of my itinerary.

Thank you very much.


Hi there!

Coming from Omachi, it would make sense to stay the night at the end of the Alpine route near Tateyama/Toyama or Kanazawa. It's not too hard to travel from Toyama to Kurobe Horge, so you could either advance your luggage to Toyama (most likely your accommodation) or forward most of it to Nagoya and just take enough with you to cover 2 days.
