Who wants to watch these monkeys bathe?
The Jigokudani Monkey Park (地獄谷野猿公苑), located in Nagano, offers visitors the unique experience of seeing wild monkeys bathing in a natural hot spring. The park is inhabited by Japanese Macaques, which are also known as Snow Monkeys. It is located in the monkey’s natural habitat, in the forests of the Jigokudani valley of Nagano.
The park has one man-made pool around which the monkeys gather, located a few minutes’ walk from the park entrance. Visitors will likely already encounter monkeys along the path to the pool. The monkeys live in large social groups, and it can be quite entertaining to watch their interactions. Accustomed to humans, the monkeys can be observed from very close and almost completely ignore their human guests. Since the monkeys tend to bathe in the hot springs more during the winter season, the best time to visit the Snow Monkey Park is between December to March, when there is snow.
