What a beautiful little paradise! Tucked away in the small town of Yudanaka this ryokan provides hospitality and graciousness. Spacious rooms, great views. The meals were exquisitely prepared in traditional Japanese style. A great place to come to recover from jetlag or other stress.

We travelled to Yudanaka from Tokyo (it was around a 3 hour train ride) and stayed one night to experience the onsens. We also had a chance to hike up to the mountain to visit the snow monkeys in their small hot springs.

Well, you too could make one of those famous photos with monkeys in warm pool. This would work only in winter, when it's really cold. At temperatures above 5 deg.C monkeys don't enter the water. However, they are playing, fighting and flirting all the times...More

It was very funny to watch the monkeys interact and to go into the hot springs. They got very close to you so you could really see what they were like
