The tour leader came and went during this time, checking for news at the station. Eventual lit emerged that all trains that day were cancelled so he queued for about 90 minutes to buy reserved tickets for an early bullet train the following day. Then he had to find us a hotel for the night as none of us were keen to return to the ryokan, ...

... the next train, which was to Nagano, we missed it and had to wait for the next one. That was 20 minutes late leaving so what had been at the outset a very tight schedule for the day so that we could see the snow monkeys became almost impossible.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, the Japanese archery demonstration was free and very informative. The onsen and rooms are very cozy and warm, would definitely stay here again if we ever come back to Yudanaka.
