【November】Entering From Ogizawa Is Recommended
In November, please be aware that operation of Tateyama Highland Bus (running between Bijodaira and Murodo) may be suspended or delayed due to bad weather such as snowfall and high winds. If you are planning to visit the Alpine Route in November, please check our website or ask local station staff about operation status prior to your departure.
If you are going to Murodo to play with new snow in November, we recommend you enter the Alpine Route from Ogizawa (Nagano side). Hardly any of the vehicles running between Ogizawa and Murodo get affected by heavy snow, so it is safer to come from Ogizawa side. If Tateyama Highland Bus was suspended, you could not pass through the Alpine Route, but you could come up to Murodo and go back to Ogizawa.
