Trip to Yudanaka to see the Snow Monkeys

A travel blog entry by kirstyollie


... we very much needed. Whilst we ate we were treated to the sounds of the piano that was playing all by itself in the corner.

After our breakfast Mr Yumoto kindly drove us up to the Jigokudani Monkey Park. We were a little bit worried as no monkeys had been seen the previous day due to the bad weather, so we were hoping that we would be lucky and get to see them as this was the whole reason we had come. We walked the 30 minutes to the park along a ...

An Epic ride up Mt. Shirane

Strengthened, I enter the very old fashioned but nonetheless very nice Hokusai museum with lots of prints from "a 100 views of Mount Fuji", paintings, wooden panels... And I learn that he became famous producing ...

Snow Monkeys here

... are very clean. There are also two towels, a small one with which you basically dry yourself and a larger one for finishing touches, nothing foreign is allowed in the onsen. We booked the private onsen which was on the roof. It was quite small but the water was very hot. There was a header tank constantly feeding into the tub replacing the water displaced when you get in. We lolled about in the hot water, enjoying the view and wondering if the people living ...
