全国巡りたび 中部エリア 全国巡りたび 中部エリア

Starting from Osaka.
Efficient and easy trip around Japan's
"high-quality unexplored region"

After a lengthy trip of several hours from Osaka via connecting trains, you'll reach the entrance to the unexplored region "Kurobe Tateyama Alpine Route" that represents the true Japan. The corridor in the sky that crosses the Japanese Alps, which is also called "the roof of Japan", can be traversed by public transportation, and in winter, a snow wall called "Snow Otani" appears. While staying at a shukubo (accommodation at a monastery), tour the "pristine, unexplored regions" of Japan, such as "Zenkoji", whose principal image is the oldest Buddha statue in Japan, and "Togakushi Shrine," which has a history of more than 2,000 years. In fact, the entire mountain is a sacred place. Why don't you enjoy this deep and primitive region of Japan?
