"Kurobe Valley" is dubbed one of the last, rarely visited regions in Japan. The snow accumulated in the mountains pours into the bottom of the valley throughout summer. The trail along the Kurobe river finally opens after the snow has melted in September and remains open only for two months. Seize this short, beautiful window of opportunity.
