Train Trip to Snow Monkey Park

Nagano
6 hours 30 min

Great trip to snow monkeys/ Nagano!

Emi was a wonderful guide! She is very knowledgeable about the Nagano area. We truly enjoyed our day visiting the snow monkeys. Emi gave me frequent updates on weather, how to prepare, and was available for any questions. We then explored Nagano, ate local food, and went to a sake brewery. This was one of my favorite days in Japan! Thank you, Emi-san for a memorable experience!

Hayley N.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review! I really enjoyed accompanying you. We detoured on the way and I cannot forget the soba lunch with you! Thank you for the warm-hearted memory. I wish you a merry Christmas and a new year filled with good health and happiness.

Wonderful Tour

Emi was amazing! I initially booked the incorrect start time and she was more than willing to change it for us. She was thoughtful, well-prepared, and very knowledgeable. She customized the tour to meet our needs. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Emi, you won't regret it!

Anne A.

Thank you very much for choosing "Nagano Town Walk”. You kindly allowed me to do what I most wanted to do as a local guide. I was "super happy” walking with you two and showing my hometown around. Nothing would be better to me than my guests enjoyed my hometown! I won’t forget our pleasant walks before and after dusk. I sincerely appreciate your high recognition.

Professional and helpful tour guide

I hired the service of Emi for a two hours tour of Matsumoto Castle. We are a group of travelers who would like to learn in depth about the castle, focusing on its history, architecture and restoration. I have to say that Emi met our expectations comfortably. She was very meticulous in her planning; she proposed a detailed itinerary that includes info such as which parts of the castle is more interesting and which part is less crowded. She gave a good explanation about the history and restoration process using old pictures of the castle that she printed out in advance. Her English is also very good, loud and clear to understand. She's very friendly and prompt in her response, and she continue to reply our queries even after the tour. I will definitely hire her service again if I have a chance to visit the Nagano region in the future.

Hello Stanley, Thank you very much for taking time to write a good review on me. I understand that you have been busy operating your tours. I was very happy to be with you and your friendly customers on April 10th. Although the half of them had to turn back halfway because of the accident which occurred in another group, the rest of them who reached the top of the donjon enjoyed a fine view, the robust structures of the ceiling and the story of the goddess of 26 nights I narrated. In spite of the unexpected incident, you led the customers professionally, and your customers looked very satisfied with your services. I hope I can work with you again in the future. Congratulations on your hard work. Regards, Emi

Jigokutani Yaen Koen, so-called the Snow Monkey Park, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nagano. If you are lucky, you will see some monkeys bathing in the hot spring. The natural trail is often frozen and slippery in winter season. From May to November, reaching the place is easier than in winter. How about enjoying a local train ride and encountering wild monkeys?

Zenkoji is a famous temple and its main hall is designated as a national treasure. Some say they want to visit Zenkoji-temple at least once in their lifetime. It has had a long history of pilgrimage. After Zenkoji, I'd like you to visit Nagano Prefectural Art Museum. You'll enjoy its architectural beauty and the masterpieces of a Japanese post-war painter, Kaii Higashiyama. Buddhist vegetarian lunch at a temple inn or healthy French cuisine at the museum restaurant is my recommendation.

The black and white contrast of the castle with a backdrop of "the Japan Alps" is really photogenic!! When you stroll the castle town, you come across rows of old houses and also fresh spring waters in every corner. The water in this region is good to produce nice rice wine, sake. Please enjoy!

In Jigokudani (literally meaning is Hell Valley) monkeys take bath in open-air Onsen(Hot spring) in particular during winter season. Visitors can reach there in 3 hours by taking bullet trains and Nagano Dentetsu railway from Tokyo. Near the snow monkey park, there is a old town of Obuse. Obuse is famous for the works of Hokusai Katsushika. In 1840's Hokusai visited Obuse in his 80's years old and stay there for several years. There is the museum of Hokusai and his patron's housing. You can have lunch in Obuse. There are some restaurants and confectionery shops and Sake breweries. You could have chances to Sake tasting. If you want, you could visit the temple whose ceiling paint is the largest and last work by Hokusai and his daughter. As the temple is located at outskirt of Obuse, you need to take taxi. Leaving Tokyo station at 7:20 in the morning, you would arrive at the park around 10:30. You will have enough time to watch monkeys' life. You will enjoy seeing not only the snow monkeys but the beautiful landscape of Central Japan Mountain. You could be back to your hotel by around 19:00 in Tokyo.
