The drive up to the snow monkeys was interesting as I had never been to Nagano before, the walk to the snow monkeys was a beautiful walk, just make sure you have proper shoes for the half hour trek. Lots of monkeys out on the day. Lunch was exceptional, typical Japanese bento box style, something for everyone. The snow time play was the best! The guide we had was so great, he worked hard the whole time to make sure we were having fun, even gave my son some instruction on the equipment which made it more enjoyable for him. It was a great introduction to skiing in Japan and we will be back next year!
Loved this tour. The guide was excellent. He was great with everyone and particularly with the younger kids and teenagers. Given that there isn't a lot of time available, he certainly gave our kids enough guidance to make their snow activities worthwhile and enjoyable. This tour was a great way to see the adorable snow monkeys and the Shiga Kogen ski area if you only have a few days in the region.
Guides were great very informative and chill. I loved the relaxed atmosphere, we hung out with monkeys til we were ready to leave. No pressure to get going as we had to keep a schedule. Cherry blossoms were just beautiful. I can't get enough of them.
We felt well taken care of. Lunch was superb. There was clothing equipment rental for the unprepared. The timing of activities was excellent. We all had a fantastic time in our group!
Quick and easy booking. Reasonable price and value. Very courteous and helpful tour guide.
