Snow Monkey Park @ Nagano, Japan

Snow Monkey Park is popular among locals and travelers. However, it took me a great deal to get to Snow Monkey Park. I was recovering from a foot injury and I had to walk about 45 minutes to get there and back. Just take note that the walkway was slippery due to the snow.

We went there late December last year. A good time for skiing and the place we stayed (Okushiga Kogen Hotel) was really convenient to ski.

I was so happy to see this signboard


However, there was still quite a distance before I actually see the snow monkeys but I liked the view


You have to see it for yourself, very adorable sight


You would be surrounded by snow monkeys (Japanese Macaques). They are not afraid of humans. Just try not to feed them.


I took more videos instead
