INFORMATION AND BOOKINGS FOR THE SNOW MONKEY TOUR

Most people have seen the snow monkeys on TV bathing in the hot springs at Jigokudani about 2 hours from Hakuba. If you want to see the real thing it is very easy to do so on a day tour from Hakuba. You do need to allocate a full day though and to give up a day on the mountain. The tour includes transport, the park entry fee, lunch at a restaurant in the historical town of Obuse with free time after to explore and a trip to the 1,400 yr old buddhist Zenkoji Temple (entry included). To get to the monkeys is a 30-45 minute walk along a forest trail (take sturdy shoes and warm clothing).
