Kurobe Alpine Route on the 16th April 2014/1/12 20:56
Hi, I was hoping to go from Matsumoto to do the Alpine Route on the 16th April. Will this be a definite being the first day of the route opening?
Also can I forward our luggage onto Takayama? And where should I do this from?
Thanks.

No, it is just the scheduled opening day. Depending on weather and snow conditions, there is a risk that it may get delayed. I cannot remember however that there has ever been a delay in recent years. So, I think the risk is relatively low.

Also can I forward our luggage onto Takayama?

If you use the regular delivery services, you can do so with delivery on the next day:

And where should I do this from?

I recommend to send it away from the hotel you stay at the night before or two nights before passing the Alpine Route.
