Fly by drone over the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route, a 90 km route crossing Tateyama in the Japanese Alps. This snow corridor has become famous for Yukino-ōtani, a valley of snow with canyon-like walls that can reach 20 meters (66 feet) in height. They are carved out every spring with the aid of bulldozers and GPS to help find the road under months of heavy snowfall:

The spectacle of this attraction can be hard to see from above by drone. Watch this 2012 video from the road. Be sure to compare the bus and tourists to the height of the walls:

Japan-Guide reports that the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route snow corridor will be open to pedestrians from April 15 to June 22 in 2017.
