     Now, tamori up here in writing.  Just, where to go, I don't know, but if the Black-4 If you plant root as described below there is far more interesting.  Went to Tateyama-machi Toyama-Toyama station railway station, bus, cable car ride guest hall.  From here get to the highest in Japan.  However, devising station, pleasing to many chat.  Down the long aerial tramway and Black 4 dams.  If it weren't for the money from Office as the Tateyama Summit aim.  Free of charge.  Going to the mountaintop shrine looks black 4 dam is near the bottom.  Visitors other than fee is free of charge.  The ropeway for high.  Toyama Prefecture people depending on the time discounts are supposed to be, some people from outside?  Black 4 dam is hard, let's go up towards the top.  Whole image I want to see.  On the route, as in Omachi is out.  Who came by car to the Tateyama-machi shipping services that Tateyama traffic and car sent to the Omachi (at an extra cost of course) could.  Sign up here for the people who back the same way, so I hate that comes from the Kansai Electric power Kurobe route tour guide is here-you can also go to Natsuki on the.  Conversely-ride-from, ride on electric route along the way lift or high heat tunnel up an incline with a black 4 power plants, will come to the dam.  And you can also reach the guest hall in the reverse route.  It is whether or not the problem is get a Kurobe route tours.  There are heritage sites in the world-wide construction of the Olympic Games before, hopefully. Numb. Kansai Electric power only to an electric shock.

Take a deep breath while somehow arrived, dysfunctional leg or is on the verge of arriving in a cottage in the thin air. The next morning departures at aimed at Oyama mountain at 5. Tough climb the steep rocky rumbling of huge rocks, climb by the mountains shine in the Sun could have been encouraged to come open gradually sight, standing on the Summit, the view was fantastic nothing irreplaceable.

    I would love to go once ago and thought, we saw went for the first time. In the process through the Kurobe dam, trolley-buses, funicular and aerial tramway was the guest hall so much better, in the air, very good. I'd seen wall of snow at a time, but now season changing the look you want.
