Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park, Yamanouchi-machi
(4.5/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Part of a larger national park, Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park features a series of hot springs that attract a large number of Japanese macaques. Especially picturesque when covered in snow, this remote area allows you to observe monkeys as they bathe in the pools of warm water. Get close to the animals and take a few photos, but remember that it's forbidden to touch and feed the wildlife sheltered within park grounds.
