Day trip from Tokyo to Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route

Will appreciate advices if this is feasible.

I had read up the alpine website and refered to their timetables.

They have advice 6 - 8 hrs from Tateyama to Ogizawa but I can only spare 5 - 6 hrs.


Using JR East Pass, travelling on a Sat in June.

From Shibuya to Toyama, reach Toyama at 1015am, catch the rail from Tentetsu Toyama at 1037am and reach Tateyama Stn at 1131am

Complete whole alpine trip and reach Ogizawa by 5.55pm. Catch last bus to Shinano-Omachi and then train back to Shibuya.

It's bit rush but it sounds feasible to me.

If the train schedule says it can be done, then it can be done. It sounds like you'll just be riding the trains all day.

FYI, if you leave Shibuya at 5:25 am and catch the 6:40 ANA to Toyama, you can be in Tateyama at 9:59 am. Otherwise if you catch the 6:25 train and transfer as suggested, you'll be there at 11:33. Either way, plan on at least 5 hours for transportation from Shibuya -- one way.

Be sure to check the train website for the right trains. Unclick airplane if you want only trains.


Personally, I would go when I have more time. You won't have any time to walk around and breathe the fresh air!
