Japan Alpine Route (Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route) Questions
Last edited 05/05/2019 - 20:02
I have asked around my friend circle and it doesn't appear anyone I know has done this just yet. We're planning to go in 2 weeks to the Alpine Route.
Sources I have read so far, but not limited to:
Handful of things I need to clarity.
There's a foreigner ticket we can buy in advance - 'Tateyama Kurobe Option Ticket' is a discount ticket available for 9800 yen we plan on purchasing a day in advance which apparently covers the entire trip one way.
There's a reservation service for the Cablecar and electric bus which are part of the route: https://tateyama-kurobe.alpen-route.com/ticket/en/
- I don't understand how this works because it's asking me to pay when I'm trying to select a time slot, even though the Option Ticket covers my entire route? I want to avoid getting there, and being stuck at one section because we haven't booked in advance. Can anyone clarify what I should do?
