Trip to Yudanaka to see the Snow Monkeys

A travel blog entry by kirstyollie


... as they moved around, getting the chance to be very close to them. I really enjoyed watching the baby monkeys as they were really cute. They tend to stay close to their mums and liked to hitch rides around on their backs or fronts. We couldn't believe how human like they were, they have proper hands and fingers just like us. They loved to go for a swim in their little onsen and we even watched one holding his breath and staying under water for ages. We ...

An Epic ride up Mt. Shirane

... the views grew more impressive. I have to say that this is the most scenic mountain climb I've ever done on a bike.

Each onsen has a women's side and a men's side. Supposedly each onsen is good for different things. One helps with skin ailments while another is good for intestinal problems etc etc. I don't know about that but it was a lot of fun! We went on a bit of a restaurant hop for dinner. There was a yakitori place ...

... 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 ...
