Miscellaneous: but if you decide to drive your car for Alpine Route, there is a span of area where cars are not permitted, between Tateyama and Ogizawa Stations.

Except, please be aware that closing time for the pick-up points is around 17:00-18:00 so please confirm your transport schedule accordingly.Related to:
