At the Kurobe-Daira Station of the Tateyama Ropeway, observation decks are located.
You can enjoy spectacular scenery of Mt. Tateyama. Mt. Onnanji, the highest peak of Mt. Tateyama (Altitude: 3,015 meters) can be seen from Kurobe-Daira. You can see Daikanbo Ropeway Station on the mountainside of Mt. Onnaji.
The gondolas of the Tateyama Ropeway look very small compared to huge Mt. Tateyama.
On the other side, you will see Mt. Akazawa (Altitude: 2,678 meters) across Kurobe Gorge.
This scenery was also beautiful.
From Kurobe-Daira, you can access to Lake Kurobe, "Kurobe-Ko", by Kurobe Cable Car.
In winter, this area is known as a deep-snow district. In order to avoid avalanches, the Kurobe Cable Car runs through a tunnel.
