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.

... very few signs and incomplete directions so we had to feel our way a bit. The entrance fee was a modest 500 yen and as we were walking through the gate we were VERY up close with the Japanese macaques. These monkeys number about 200 and apparently not all of them like the thermal pools. We walked over a footbridge over the river below and the monkeys were lounging about all around us. There were signs telling us how to behave (eg don't touch the monkeys, don't look them in the ...

... 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 ...
