What to Expect
Over 160 wild Japanese Macaque monkeys inhabit the Snow Monkey Park and the area is a paradise for the monkeys. During winter the monkeys enjoy bathing in the hot spring. The park provides us a rare opportunity for us to watch the Macaque up close and observe their fascinating behavior.
At Zenkoji Temple, we will buy a ticket for the kaidan meguri and take the stairs down into the pitch-black crypt passage under the main hall of the temple. If you touch the key below, you will be guaranteed to connect with the pure land.
Sake tasting is also available for those interested.
