Nagano_Jigokudani Monkey Park

I am an English guide in charge of
Jigokudani Monkey Park.


Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.


Jigokudani Monkey Park offers you the unique unforgettable experience of watching wild monkeys soaking in a natural hot spring. About 180 Japanese Macaques, known as snow monkeys, inhabit the area.
The Jigokudani monkey park is situated in the forest of the Jigokudani valley in Yamanouchi, not far from the hot spring town of Shibu and Yudanaka. You can make a day trip even from Tokyo. Recently more and more foreign visitors are coming to this park during the winter season.
