Trip to Yudanaka to see the Snow Monkeys

... the snow monkeys in their natural environment and we were so glad that we had made the trip. (We even made a video of our day with the monkeys which you can see by clicking the video link to the right.)

Once again Mr Yumoto collected us from the monkey park and after collecting our bags and saying our goodbyes to them, we were back on the train heading into Nagano. Mr and Mrs Yumoto were such great hosts and very hospitable, making our stay ...

The other thing about onsen is that you very quickly get quite blasé about public nudity. You walk into the change room and there are 5 or 6 naked ...

Snow Monkeys here

... whether or not you wear anything underneath but she wasn’t risking him exposing his ankles to the other guests. You are invited to wear the yukata anywhere in the hotel precinct and to all meals. The room is a tatami style room which means the floor is covered with straw mats or tatami. There are no beds in the room. While we are at dinner someone comes in and sets up two futons on the floor. There is a very small bathroom area, but who needs a bath ...
