Jigokudani Monkey Park


TUJ Student Activities coordinated an overnight trip to Kusatsu, a town that is famous for its onsens (hot springs).
After a long bus ride, we made a stop to see snow monkeys at Jigokudani Monkey Park. If you’re interested in monkeys, this is the post for you. My post that follows this one shares the experience of staying in Kusatsu for a night.

These monkeys are famous because they bathe in onsens for warmth – pretty unique.

If I could turn back time, I would, just to attend this event.
