Japanese Alps #2 – Alpen Route

Taking the trip to the Alpine Route is a mission for a foreigner like me and for anyone in terms of energy

This hike is only open April to November due to the heavy snow as roads are closed. From Toyama, my #1 tip is to purchase your package tour in advance as train tickets go on sale at 5am at the train station but at 5.15 when I arrived, they were sold out and the queue was formed for the 6.10 train

You then hop on that pretty tiny local train and go to the 1st stop and guess what? there, you need to exchange your pass for the next ticket and queue for a 50mn bus journey to the 2nd stop
