We booked the tour through Expedia and had a great day out. The price was a tad steep because it was an exclusive tour for the 2 of us, with a guide. The trip included pick up from the hotel and all the tickets -...More
When we were planning our recent trip to Japan with our families, we were unsure if the trip to Yudananka and the Snow Monkey Park was worth it. We loved the walk into the park and spending time just watching the monkeys at play. top...More
I have wanted to visit the spa-bathing snow monkeys since 1970 when they appeared on the cover of LIFE Magazine... and the Jigokudani Park did not disappoint. It is a short hike along a scenic slightly-graded earthen path to reach the monkey's play area, but...More
#tripadvisor #советыпутешественникам How to reach Jigokudani Monkey Park (Part 1). First of all, dress warm. We came from Tokyo area where there’s no a single snowflake at the moment and during the day the temperature goes up to +13C sometimes. In the park area it...More
We had the pleasure of visiting the snow monkey park on a recent visit to Japan. It was about a 2 1/2 hour (2 bus trek) from the ski resort we were at. Honestly, we would have traveled double that if required to see this...More
We went around Christmas/New Year's and stayed at Shibu Onsen. The Kokuya inn we stayed at had a free shuttle to the beginning of the trail for the snow monkey park, which takes us up about a mile past the parking lot/bus stop where others...More

There is a car park at the entrance and the distance is 1.6KM(one way) from the car park to the monkey park. We were there in mid December and it snow the day before. So the trail is a bit muddy. There are snow boots and jacket for rent at the shop near the car park.
Though the distance is 1.6KM, we did not felt tired as the weather was cooling at that time and we took a lot of photos of the snow covered forest along the way.
There was no wind so it was bearable with a thick jacket.
Take note that the monkeys only come and bath at the onsen during the cold months.
