Shimonoroka is only open 1 month per year. When they cut the dam water after tourist season and snow finally melts in the gorge, the trails becomes walkable. 28km with over 70% hugging cliff walls.

Leaving Kurobe dam.  

 

Random blocks of snow in October.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few showers to keep you fresh.  

A few tunnels on the trail.  

20 men need to fit on these 12  futons.

I will enjoy old age.  

 

 

 

 

 

After the 28km, you hop on an open train for an hour.
