I have traveled the world from China, Egypt, Prague, Italy, Cuba and I have to say that visiting the Nagano Snow Monkey Park, with your guide Takeshi, was one of the most fabulous experiences of my life. I hope to return in the winter someday!

Truly Exceptional.
That's the only sentence to describe the place. I arrived by train and my local guide was right there. She planned the trip so well that we did not waste a minute and I really enjoyed being at the park with Snow Monkeys. Although, there was no snow and wasn't too cold for monkeys to bath in the hot water pool but we saw monkeys real close. I got a chance to take a lot of pictures and videos of monkeys in their natural habitat. Also, a selfie with monkey . I like the way that they did not modernize the place to be tourist friendly but it is monkey friendly. One caution, if you do not like walking then this tour is not for you. To see the monkeys you'll have to walk over a mile one way then back same distance. So prepare to walk. Also, make sure to have rubber boots or hiking boots as it becomes muddy during wet days and if it snowed previous night it would be slippery as well.
After our visit to the park we walked to local Sake factory, which offers tasting their own creation of Sake in various varieties. I liked unfiltered one and bought couple of bottles for gifting back home.
Lastly, I would like to give 5 star rating to my guide who was very knowledgeable and very active and the funny thing is, I was the only member in the group so she acted like my personal guide o.

Michiko was super nice and it was nice to have a guide take us to the monkey park. We were the only people on the tour which was great because we didn't have to wait for anyone else. I think this tour is best for people who are very new to Japan or not so frequent travellers, avid travellers can figure out this tour on their own with some online research. The cost doesn't include the entry into the park or the bus fare so keep that in mind. The monkey park itself it truly fantastic, the only thing that knocks a star is that I wish we had more time to take photos, 30 minutes went by so fast considering it takes about 45 minutes to walk there and another 45 to get back. The walk is beautiful though especially if it's been snowing lately, I would recommend snow boots if you have them as it can get icy and muddy, but I wore addidas and was fine too.
