Winter Fun in Nagano: Snow Hut Village Restaurant, Snow Monkeys & Obuse (2 Days)


1. Enjoy Noroshi Nabe hotpot, a specialty dish of Shinshu Province, at the Snow Hut Village Restaurant inside an igloo! This unique restaurant is unsurprisingly difficult to book on your own. 2. Sledding in Kamakura Snow Hut Village! 3. Visit the Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park, where you can observe monkeys bathing in the hot springs close by. This is the only place in the world you can experience this! It is part of Shiga Kogen and located in the valley of the Yokoyu River in Shinshu Province. You'll want to take plenty of photos of the monkeys relaxing in the snowy hot springs! 4. Accommodation includes a large communal bath just a 5 minute walk from Matsumoto Castle. In the evening, you can enjoy a stroll that includes the view of Matsumoto Castle lit up.
