Gigantic Snow Wall Along Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route In Japan

We have seen the photos below constantly on Facebook, Twitter etc but we couldn’t imagine the origin of the route. The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is a distinct and strikingly large route that goes through the Northern Japan Alps, which is extended across by various means of transportation (cable cars, trolley buses and a ropeway). It is especially well known for the high snow walls that line some of its roads in spring.

According to Wikipedia: The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is a famous mountain sightseeing route between Tateyama, Toyama and Ōmachi, Nagano, Japan. The whole route opened on June 1, 1971.
