1. Nagano: Snow Monkeys, Zenkoji Temple & Sake Day Trip

Take in some of the highlights of Nagano on this engaging tour starting with a visit to Zenko-ji Temple – one of the oldest and most important Buddhist temples in Japan – followed by sake-tasting and lunch at a local restaurant. It’s then time to head to the world-renowned Snow Monkey Park! This troop of monkeys are the only monkeys in the world known to bathe in hot springs. Watching them live their best life in close proximity is a wonderful experience unlike any other. Led by a locally based English-speaking guide, this tour is a great way to see the best that Nagano has to offer. Meet your tour guide at Nagano Station at 9:35 AM. For guests traveling from Hakuba, from December through March, your journey can begin with a shuttle from Hakuba Tokyu Hotel (Wadano area) at 7:40 AM OR Hakuba Happo Bus Terminal at 7:55 AM. Please be at your chosen pickup point in advance of the meetup time as the tour must depart on-time. This tour is scheduled to conclude at Nagano Station by 17:30 (and by 18:45 for guests joining from Hakuba in winter).

I enjoyed the free time around the temple and local shops to try some local apple pies. , The organised lunch was delicious and in a spacious relaxed setting. Sake tasting was good got to try lots of different varieties. The transport very comfortable. The walk to the snow monkeys whilst long was picturesque. The monkey experience was fantastic you can get up very close and we had plenty of time there even though we were the last to get there. This day was so relaxing the guides were super helpful and friendly.

The tour was very well planned, organized, and executed. Regardless of slight rain, the trip was amazing! You get the best of all: local experience, cultural submersion, educational discoveries, physical exercise, and of course - the MONKEYS! One of the best tours, and the BEST tour guide Kevin. The review is largely due to his humor, knowledge and ability to entertain large groups, including kids. 10 out of 10!

It was a great experience for us which we can only recommend to all fellow tourists. Our guides Joyce and Endo did a great job in providing us with information, facts, (food) tipps and more in a friendly and helpful way including some jokes. To anyone who‘s unsure in booking this trip we can only say you will miss a great tour.

Great trip with a very nice team ( Jens and Kevin). We enjoyed it all - monkeys, shrines, sake tasting, great lunch, comfortable bus and fellow travelers. Please be aware that to see monkeys you’ll need to take a 1.8km uphill hike. Would strongly recommend renting boots at the base as it could get slippery and wet.

The day trip was very well planned. The guide also had a lot of interesting information about the respective stops and also took the time to answer questions. The pickup and return transfer went smoothly. The restaurant for lunch was excellent. All in all, recommended.
