The scenic route

The Yomiuri Shimbun

The Yomiuri ShimbunLooking like a trail left in the snow by a skier, a portion of the recently snowplowed Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is seen winding across the glistening mountains in this aerial photo taken Friday. The snow is being removed from a 23-kilometer part of the route that cuts through the Northern Japanese Alps, which run through Toyama and Nagano prefectures, in time for the spring sightseeing season. The entire route is scheduled to open on April 15.Speech
