The Snow Monkeys of Nagano

Japan > Nagano

11 December 2011

A visit to Jigokudani Yaen-koen, some 35km northeast of Nagano city, to see the fascinating Snow Monkeys. A long way to get there. An express bus ride from Nagano Station takes 50min to a stop near the park — fare ¥1300 one way. Then another 40min walk along a village road followed by a 1.6km trail into the forest. Park entrance costs ¥500. But definitely an experience not to be missed.
