Jigokudani Monkey Park Attractions

As the name of the park already indicates, it is a place where you will see monkeys, more particularly Japanese macaques (snow monkeys) and there will be lots of them. In fact, the main reason why so many tourists visit the park is the chance to see groups of macaques bathing in the hot springs and this sight can be observed December to March, when there is more snow in the territory. The park is open daily and there is a 500 yen entrance fee.
