Suggestions on Travelling to/on the Alpine Route.

Dear all,

I have about a week in Nagoya area and would like to spend five days solo to explore the Alpine Route (and possibly vicinity?).

I DO NOT want to rush around and looking forward and prepare to stay at accommodation within/near the route. I prefer to spend time to enjoy rather than rushing to visit attraction after attraction. I can be an early riser if there is a need.

May I have some recommendation on how I should best spend the 5 days and where best to stay (with low to mid-budget).

I heard it is less crowded with travel the route from west to east?

Thank you very much.

Kanazawa, Takayama and Matsumoto are the three major places near the Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route. You could include two of these in a round trip journey using JR.

If you have more time Nagano and its surrounding district have much to see also.

Thank you both for useful info which I will take into my research. I'm at very early stages of planning our second trip to Japan, and would like to visit 'smaller' places and to see something else than temples and castles this time. I will return to TA for more questions later.
