Day Trip to Jigikudani

Is probably the only place in the world that you can see wild monkeys bathing on onsens

Day Trip out of Tokyo

Going to the Monkey Park from Tokyo is a doable, but expensive day trip.

Take the 7:28am Shinkansen from Tokyo to Nagano
Change to the local Nagano Dentetsu (40min) to Yudananka
Take local bus to the Kayanbashi Onsen
Hike 30 min to the Park!!!

Snow Monkeys

It is amazing to see the monkeys just roaming in the onsen and the snow banks.
