Snow Wall (Yuki-no-Otani)

Snow Wall (Yuki-no-Otani) Snow Wall (Yuki-no-Otani)

Because this area of Tateyama gets some extremely heavy snowfall in winter, the highway gets blocked. Therefore, every year, when spring comes, a massive 500m long and 20m high wall is formed on both sides of the highway, making a clearing for the Alpine Route. Travelers wishing to see this towering snow structure can walk down a pathway created for pedestrians.
