What To Expect

Get a chance to see one of Japan's most photogenic animals, the Japanese macaque, with this winter-exclusive, one day tour of the Jigokutani Onsen. Commonly called "snow monkeys," these fascinating creatures spend most of their days either playing in the powdery snow in the area or soaking themselves in the hot springs, their red faces sticking out from the white snow. Begin the tour by meeting up with your tour group at Shinjuku Station's West Exit, then take the bus to Nagano Prefecture, near the Japanese Alps. Hop off the bus and enjoy a delicious sukiyaki lunch that's sure to warm you up and energize you for the forty-minute walk to the onsen, filled with sights of the stunning mountains. Once you're at the onsen, you're free to spend time watching the monkeys relax and take photographs, but remember not to feed them as they might get too excited!

    Yesterday morning I took a tour bus with HIS to go see the Snow Monkeys in Yamanochi, Shimotakai-Gun-Hirao. The staff members (Tour guide and bus drivers /lunch members ) were amazing, friendly, and drove us there smoothly. We had a traditional Japanese lunch which was very good(Beef Sukiyaki/ Vegetarian options as well ). Finally, The Snow Monkeys, we were dropped off out side of the park and walked for about 50 minutes ( not able to drive up there ) finally arriving we see the hot springs and the monkeys !!! They’re super cute and they get pretty close which is great for pictures. One of the best decisions I’ve made so far coming to Japan. I recommend you go see the snow monkeys and take the tour bus, but if you plan on going, go when it’s colder, you’ll get a better chance on seeing them.

    Amazing experience! Tour guide Miss Kumiko was friendly, patient and helpful. Walk to the snow monkey park from bus alight point is 2.5km. Everything went smoothly for the trip. Would book with klook again as the day trips here are one of the best prices.
  • Karen Angelynne 19 Feb 2018
    The tour is only for Jigokudani Onsen (Snow Monkey Park). The Zenkoji temple is not included!
  • Hang Mei Anthea 8 Feb 2018
    It’s a very nice tour with good arrangement on transportation and lunch, sweet guide and driver. But the destinations are really far away from shinjuku and the visiting time is really less comparatively. It’s really rush.
  • Lyra Jessica 6 Feb 2018
    Worth it! Travelling by bus is not as bad as it seems there are stop overs almost every hour and we really enjoyed this hassle free trip. Everything went smoothly and according to schedule. We even got home a little early than expected. There were a lot of monkeys roaming around but we didn't see them bathing in the hot spring. The view on the trip was really worth it.

    Assembly point has no clear sign of which bus to hop in. I had to ask around 5 different buses which was annoying. The lunch was not great than I expected. Overall, it worth to visit. Long bus drive was not too bad because stopped at highway shop every hours.
  • Brandon 21 Jan 2018
    To be sure it will be a long day. Expect to wake up befor 6am and not get back to your hotel before 11pm. It’s a lot of travel time. But they do a fantastic job of just enough rest stops and the lunch was much better than expected for a tour like this. All in all if you want to see the snow and the monkeys this is a great way to do it.

    The tour was enjoyable and well-planned. The beef sukiyaki for lunch was delicious. There was sufficient time for us to view the snow monkeys and even a small gift shop located at the Jigokudani Onsen.
