Trip to Yudanaka to see the Snow Monkeys

A travel blog entry by kirstyollie


... One of the highlights was that it contained an inner chamber which we had to walk down to via a narrow staircase, which lead to a completely pitch black corridor. You had to use your right hand to feel along the wall and find your way. Near the end you touch a metal key hanging on the wall to give you enlightment. When we left we definitely felt something although we weren't sure what it was!

We had a quick lunch and headed back to the station bound for ...

The first thing I should tell you is that the onsen are quite small and the water is incredibly hot!! 50 ...

The day I met Hokusai in an Onsen
