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. Although the park is open all year round, the bathing monkeys are particularly photogenic when the area is covered in snow. There is usually snow in the region from December to March, and the best timing for a visit is January and February.
I don't know if you have seen a video of a monkey hot spring? Most of them are in the Hell Valley Wilderness Court in Nagano, or SNOW MONKEY PARK. It is also the only wild monkey hot spring in the world. Located in the northern part of Nagano Prefecture, it is covered by ice and snow for one-third of the year. A few decades ago, a small monkey accidentally entered the open-air hot springs of a nearby hot spring hotel. It felt very comfortable. After that, more and more monkeys came to the bubble. Because of problems in cleaning and other aspects, a new bubble was specially created for the monkeys. The place of the hot springs.
To get there, take the Nagano Electric Railway to Yudanaka Station, change the bus and get off at Shanglin Hot Spring, and walk for 30 minutes. If there is snow in the mountain road, it will take a little longer. As for whether you can see the monkey, the number is uncertain. The hot springs are designed to resist the cold, so the chances of seeing the cold are higher. The number I saw this time is quite a lot. The monkey's daily life is so interesting, and the little monkey is even more lovely. Although it is said that it cannot be close to one meter, the monkey will naturally walk by the side of the person and can observe it at close range. Be careful not to feed, don't tease monkeys, don't use flash or selfie sticks. In short, they still have to give them a relatively natural environment.
