  • This was the highlight of my Winter Japan trip. The views along the long walk to the snow monkeys were BEAUTIFUL. This experience can be enjoyed by all age groups.  more »
  • Definitely make sure to get there when the park opens. There were more monkeys in the onsen in the earlier hours, and it got more crowded with people later on.  more »
