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

Whether or not the enjoy listening to Bach every night I cannot say. If they are similarly minded as the very friendly and enthusiastic youth hostel owner, who puts on mystery kitsch piano during ...

Snow Monkeys here

A travel blog entry by spiderwebbs


... spring pool and come down during the day to swim. The temperature of the water is normally about 41 degrees; however it is cooled to 30 in the summer. The monkeys were mostly lazing about grooming themselves and each other. Lots of little babies were playing with each other and older monkeys, and there were always one or two enjoying the water in the pool. There was never a quiet moment and you couldn’t help being mesmerised by their antics. There are ...
