Jigokudani, or the Snow Monkey Park as it is more commonly known these days, offers visitors the unique experience of seeing a troop of macaque monkeys not only playing in the snow, but also bathing in the hot waters of a natural hot-spring. The park is located within the natural habitat of the monkeys, on a forested mountainside close to the towns of Shibu and Yudanaka, in Nagano.
