Walls of Snow Japan
Amazing empty streets of snow.
The mind blowing ice walls of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route are very quiet this year. This annual phenomenon which takes place in Tateyama just over 2 hours from Nozawa Onsen is impressive and something you should try and see once in your life. The walls of snow can reach a staggering 15 meters high and a testament to how much snow the region can get over a winter.
At this time of year the snow lined streets are usually bustling with hikers and tourists eager to travel thru the mountain maze. This year like many place the streets are closed and this is the scene up there currently.
