Japan: Tateyama Kurobe

Wishing You All a Happy New Year -2018

The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route, is a unique and spectacular route through the Northern Japan Alps which is traversed by various means of transportation including cablecars, trolley buses and a ropeway. Completed in 1971, the route connects Toyama City in Toyama Prefecture with Omachi Town in Nagano Prefecture. The section between Tateyama Station and Ogizawa is closed to private vehicles. It is completely inaccessible from December to mid April.

This is a wooden Postcard and was posted by my brother in law, midway on the Alpine route. It is a cross section of a tree branch and one can see the rings of the tree. Also on the stamp is a pictorial postmark of the route. Thanks a lot, Amar and Neetu for the great card.
