2. Kurobe Gorge Railway

One of the most enjoyable experiences in all of Japan is the Kurobe Railway in the Toyama Prefecture. The train slowly snakes its way through the Hida Mountains and Kurobe Gorge allowing visitors to take in some truly magnificent views. Along the hour and a half ride, there are many stops for visitors to get out and stretch their legs. Some stops even provide an opportunity for light exploring along the mountain. The railway is open from April to November and is at its busiest in the fall. The autumn foliage provides an incredible sight.
