  • Amazing to be amongst the snow monkeys! A must see! It gets quite busy and the walk in the winter is quite icy, so be prepared with appropriate attire.  more »
  •  I went twice in one year, but foreign nationals was more than the Japanese. It is frequented by tourists from China, Southeast Asia, Europe and America and Bab.La. (Was lined with columns besides the tourists authentic super telephoto lenses.  ) Apparently Snow Monkey and overseas have been featured in as is.  You could see him when we went in February did not during their two-hour soak in the hot springs monkeys, when I visited in December without snow, lying in a hot spring. Away from the parking lot with a monkey loose, is 1.6 km road paste and walk about 30 minutes. Caution is required because it was covered with snow and slippery. (I slip road legs frozen which is discouraged in the last spot of the home. ) In familiar monkey ecology would be seen.
