Dynamic Scenery on a Steep Slope

Getting to the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route you will take several vehicles, but the first, you will get on a cable car. It will climb up to 500 meters-high over 1.3 kilometers in just 7 minutes. The average gradient is 24 degrees. The view from the car changes instantly. Along the way, there is a place called timber stone where the rocks stand like pillars. This place was originally used for dam construction, so you can see loading carriers used for construction materials.
