Hurobe Dam

Having seen modern and historical Japan, It is time to see the beauty of natural Japan.
The Kurobe Gorge was carved by the Kurobe river, a deep,steep sided canyon with breathtaking cliffs dropping straight into water of the upper and middle basins of the Kurobe river. The rugged terrain has allowed the Kurobe Gorge to remain in its natural state.  For a truly inspirational journey.we took the train along the Kurobe Gorge railroad that runs through the Gorge and experienced its beautiful untouched forests and steep cliffs.
The Kurobe Gorge Railway, a sightseeing train originally built to aid the construction of the Kurobe Dam. The exciting 80 minutes journey leads across more than 20 bridges and through over 40 tunnels and offers visitors panoramic views of the gorge below.  The trains stop at a few stations along the way where visitor can get off and explore. (10-15-14)
