Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park, Yamanouchi-machi

(4.5/5 based on 1,600+ 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.

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.
