Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route and "STUDIO CHIZU" launched a Collaboration Project. The event will also be held to enjoy the world of the animated film "Wolf Children"


Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route, one of the world's leading mountain tourism routes connecting Toyama and Nagano prefectures (operated by Tateyama Kurobe Kanko Co. (Cooperation: Toyama Prefecture). The event will also allow visitors to enjoy the world of the animated film "Wolf Children" which beautifully depicts the great nature of Tateyama Kurobe.

About the Collaboration Project

The scenery of Tateyama and Murodo-daira depicted in the 2012 animated film "Wolf Children" continues to attract many visitors. The fact that the great nature of Tateyama Kurobe exists unchanged is proof that the spirit of Tateyama worship and the Nature Park Law have been handed down from generation to generation, and that the people involved in the Company and the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route have continued to work together in various efforts to achieve the goal of "balancing development of Tateyama with nature conservation and environmental preservation. To ensure that Tateyama Kurobe continues to be a place where "people can grow and live in harmony with nature," we have decided to launch this project with STUDIO CHIZU LLP.
