Jigokudani Onsen is the only hot spring in the world where monkeys are allowed to enter. During warm days the monkeys spend their time foraging nearby and in winter, they climb down the mountain and into the hot spring.

This winter, visit the popular snow monkeys of Nagano on a local bus tour departing Tokyo. Tours are conducted in Japanese, but video translation into English or Chinese is available.
