Take a Bus Ride Between 20-Meter-Tall Walls of Snow

At the top of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is the world-famous, and rather snowy, Murodou area. The roads here are accessible from April and it takes a month to carve out a path with bulldozers. In the process of carving out the roads, massive walls of snow, 20 meters-high, form. While the sight looks like computer graphics in photos, it's quite real. Murodou is a great place to play in the snow!
