We visited Kurobe Gorge by early Nov. and took the small train ride uphill. Trip was really beautiful as the tree leaves have changed colors. Highly recommended.

Took small local train to see all nature around there. Need at least 3 hours, but if you have more time, hop off at every station, see more nature beauty.
