Shomyo Falls and Kurobe Dam in December 2019/11/22 21:51
Is there anyway to see the Shomyo Falls and the Kurobe Dam during Decemeber? The alpine route is closed, but we're planning going to drive there... Thanks.

You cannot go there in December.

It is not possible, at all, to drive to Kurobe Dam. The only way to go there is by traveling along the Kurobe-Tateyama Alpen Route, but the route is closed in December.

As for Shomyo Falls, the road there is closed from late November to late April. This year, it was closed on November 18.

I see... Any other recommendations of things to do in the Toyama or Tateyama area or near by area where it's safe to hike or do any outdoor activity? Thanks in advance.

- onsen in Unazukionsen (our a Nummer of other locations)
- Kanazawa
- Noto peninsula (and onsen there)
- Skiing https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/prefecture/toyama

Tateyama is even in summer a hard to reach place. Itfs mountains! And there arenft really any villages beyond Tateyama station. So in winter the region is covered in snow and as no one is living there, there is no need to clear the streets.
Toyama city itself isnft very interesting. So if you are in that area I would go just a little bit further to Kanazawa and Noto peninsula which are more interesting. Itfs still going to be winter, cold, snowy or rainy there, but itfs accessible.

Enjoy your trip to Toyama!

I see. I'll consider those places... Last question is Hakusan National Park open during December?

Thank you very much.

The mountain (Hakusan) is covered in snow. But the attractions around the mountain's base are accessible:
