  • Important Notes (Remarks)

    * This is a rigorous walking tour, about more than 40 minutes one-way, from Kanbayashi Onsen-guchi to Jigokudani Monkey Park. Please note that we are unable to provide additional support for those with trouble walking or small children. The walking path may be frozen and slippery if there is snow. Please wear winter boots or non-slip footwear. The average temperature in the area during winter is about -1°C. Please wear warm clothing. The tour will not enter Roman Museum.

    * If the 2-participant minimum is not met 4 days before the scheduled date, the tour may be canceled on that date.

    * A government-licensed English guide interpreter will accompany the tour from arrival at JR Nagano station until the tour ends at JR Nagano station.

    * As public transportation will be used in Nagano, seating is non-reserved and cannot be guaranteed.

    * The itinerary is subject to change depending on traffic conditions and other factors on the day.

    * The meal for lunch includes soba (buckwheat) noodles, a Nagano specialty. As traces of buckwheat flour may be present in the entire shop, those with buckwheat allergy may be unable to enter.

    * The behavior of wild monkeys is unpredictable. The park will be closed to visitors if monkeys do not come down to the park from the mountains. In such cases, the tour may be canceled on the day before the tour departs and a full refund will be issued.

    * The Japanese macaques at Jigokudani Monkey Park are wild. Do not feed or touch them. Thank you for understanding.
