Kurobe Gorge – Toyama
Kurobe Gorge is one of those underrated sights you should see. A bit off the beaten tourist track it makes the trip to Toyama worthwhile on it’s own. The story runs that in order to build a hydro electric dam a “mini” electric train system was built to move workers and gear up the Kurobe Gorge. Traveling up the gorge you are treated to a wonderful gorge scenery and the fall colours are great.
